"...underwrought darkside Americana echoing Nick Cave's fascinations minus the melodrama. Which might well make Gammage this generation's Hank Williams."
Trouser Press (USA)
"'Used Man for Sale' is Gammage's masterpiece, and a record that will stand the test of time. I'm ready to hear more!"
No Depression (USA)
“…one of the best singing voices you’ll hear and a mean harp, Gammage’s album stands as an organic response to synthetic emotions.”

Adventures in Bluesland CD
Phil's album "Adventures in Bluesland" (World Wide Vibe Records) made numerous international 'Best of 2014' lists!
The songs are divided between Phil's originals and his terrific renditions of classic songs from the American blues and folk songbook.
On this album, Phil deconstructs blues music and then reassembles it with a unique sensibility toward the human condition. The result is a music that is sometimes raucous, sometimes creepy/moody, and always grooving.
“Used Man For Sale” album release date October 4. Watch the short video promo.
Phil Gammage returns with a new 10-song (all originals) album “Used Man for Sale.” Release date is October 4, 2016.
Gammage draws his musical inspiration from many sources, but in particular, it is the most American musical form of all — the blues (which is the true essence of man and womankind) that defines this new collection of songs. He also explores lounge and countrypolitican sounds on this record.
The recording is honest with no studio gimmickry. Standout tracks include 'Arms of a Kind Woman', 'I Beg of You', 'Ride With Railroad Bill', and the title track 'Used Man For Sale.'
Produced by Kevin Tooley and recorded in New York at 30 Below Studio and World Wide Vibe Studios. Engineered by Brent McLaghlan and Kevin Tooley.
