As premiered only at Americana Highways, Phil’s new music video “What Would I Do?” from his latest album. Watch it here at YouTube.
Songwriter, vocalist, and guitar slinger, Phil Gammage is a Texas-born and raised artist who now resides in NYC. His newest and eighth album, “From Nowhere to Somewhere”, is a robust collection of Americana songs as diverse and heart-felt as the genre itself. Twisting from railroad cars, endless roads, and the folklore of 20th century America, the album draws inspiration from Phil’s life as a musician, historian, and fiction writer. The song ‘What Would I Do?’ from the album, captures the joy and love of playing music.
“We filmed this video one afternoon in Kingston, NY at the Green Kill artists space. I’m happy to have had my friends Lara Hope (the Arktones) and Jesse Towey join me as ‘actors’ for the video shoot. Their energy and sense of fun was contagious, it’s a feel good song and a feel good music video. Originally an outdoor video shoot was scheduled in New York’s Hudson Valley, but on the day of the shoot, a huge nor’easter storm hit the mid-Atlantic and fortunately we were all able to move indoors. As we filmed the winds were howling and the rain pelting outside. Very apocalyptic indeed!” ~ Phil

“Top shelf story telling is the key I think, and the songs feel sacred without being precious… not unlike listening to old Hank Williams.” ~ Hot Wax Album Reviews
“Phil Gammage has been recording blues albums years in years past, without a dog in the lot. From Nowhere is a specially strong collection of Americana with Presley-ish vocals.” ~ Rock NYC
“The music and lyrics evoke an image of a vanishing America — one of shiftless men and women who criss cross the country by rail and connect with other people only to abandon them when they feel the emotional cost is too high.” ~ Americana Highways
