“Sophisticated Americana with a Retro Elegance.”
Biography | Press | Hi-Res photos | Bookings
“Midnight on Main Street U.S.A. Outside an elegant lounge you hear a music so evocative and compelling that you are driven to step inside. Upon entering, you see across the room of well dressed patrons, a beckoning stage upon which all eyes are focused. Intoxicated by the hypnotic rhythms, you are drawn, trance-like, closer and closer. After fighting through the crowd, you finally reach the stage front and before you stands a group of dashingly handsome men who command the stage. Their soaring vocals and sultry music seduce and transport you to another world…”
Phil Gammage brings a charm to his performance unlike no other singing and playing his own unique version of traditional and original Americana, blues, jazz, and country. Phil’s good time music is the perfect soundtrack for your gathering, lounge, café, or soiree.
Gammage is an internationally acclaimed musician and recording artist who has traveled the world sharing his music. Recent live appearances include the Lancaster Roots and Blues Festival, Bluescraft Summer Festival, 2019 solo European tour, and the CBGB Festival in New York. Twisting from railroad cars, endless roads, and the folklore of the 20th century, his songs paint a picture of a nostalgic America that is gone but not forgotten.
Joining Phil are some of the top musicians in the country. Together they weave an evocative tapestry of sounds and words that leave their audiences wanting more.
“We’re totally digging it. Phil’s voice is as unique and smokey-rich as a Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley or freakin’ Frank Sinatra or something. This is petty amazing stuff.” ~ Impose Magazine
“For Gammage, it’s all about the song’s vibe and his long walks through The City That Never Sleeps, where he explores the late-night lifestyle. It’s a world of femme fatales, dark streets, potent cocktails, and a fast con.” ~ Stereo Embers
“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 by the ROCK DOCTOR
“His latest album Nowhere to Somewhere is his strongest and most diverse release in a long and underrated career. The level of songcraft matches the vast stylistic range in Gammage’s bag of riffs.”
~ New York Music Daily
“There is a very big quality to his voice as if he has channeled Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Jim Morrison to create a sound that fills every crevice, which I find wonderful and, at times, overwhelming.” ~ Swept Magazine (Canada)
“Gammage’s cool baritone bounces off that luscious plate reverb to give that dark underbelly of America twang that gave a mystique to Presley, Cash, and Marty Robbins…”
