About Phillip Phillips
Phillip Phillips released his debut CD "The World From The Side Of The Moon"
(19 Entertainment/Interscope Records) in November. The CD debuted at #4 on
Billboard's Top 200 chart and has already reached gold status. His first
single "Home" topped the charts and his second single "Gone Gone Gone" is out
now. Phillip first began making music when he was 14. He soon found himself
mastering riffs from classic-rock tracks like Deep Purple's "Smoke on the
Water" and Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train." Several years later, Phillip formed
an acoustic band with his sister and brother-in-law and added singing to his
repertoire. After graduating high school, he began studying industrial
systems technology at Albany Technical College in Georgia and continued
playing music with his brother-in-law. With encouragement from his family and
friends, Phillip took a break from working in his family's pawn shop and
auditioned for "American Idol" in summer 2011- and soon found himself tearing
through powerful, full-throated performances of songs by artists like
Creedence Clearwater Revival, Otis Redding, and Wilson Pickett on the Idol
stage.
