In 1990 Phil was awarded the ARIA Song of the Year for the song Burn For You.

During this period he achieved 3 top ten hits and a double platinum album with Southern Sons and a six times platinum album Chain Reaction with John Farnham.

In 1991 he was nominated again for the ARIA Song of the Year for the song Always and Ever and received the APRA award for most played song of the year Heart In Danger.

1993 saw Phil write the hit You Were There and 5 tracks on the John Farnham album Then Again including 2 co-writes with American recording artist Richard Marx and collaborations with legendary American country writer Randy Goodrum.

Artists in Germany, North America, Sweden and the Philippines have covered his songs, most recently Swedish artist Jett Torpe, who achieved gold sales status in 2000 for Phil’s song “What If I Do”, and “No Sky is Blue”, a song on the gold accredited Home and Away Soundtrack released in late 2002.
