By combining elements of roots music, Americana, pop, country, and blues, Gammage has created an audio scrapbook of the American experience. Lyrically his song address ideas ranging from love (“What Would I Do?”), nostalgia (“So Long and Goodbye”), despair (“Shadow Road”), to a surreal and impressionistic narrative of the last century (“Between the Tracks.” In addition he presents his stellar interpretations of two classic mid-century songs — Willie Nelson’s “Night Life” and Hank Williams’ “Alone and Forsaken.
“Top shelf story telling is the key I think, and the songs feel sacred without being precious… not unlike listening to old Hank Williams.”

“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
