Phil Dudley is a folk artist hailing from Columbiana, Alabama. As a third-generation musician, playing was not so much a choice as a calling, having been an integral part of his life for as long as he can remember. With influences drawing from Celtic Folk, Americana, Rock, and Country, Phil Dudley's music blends these influences seamlessly, incorporating the styles of many of his favorite artists such as Tom Petty, Eddie Vedder, and Loreena McKennitt to create a musical tapestry that reflects his individualistic style.
Between the ages of 10 and 18, Dudley was classically trained on piano, attending weekly lessons and playing for hours on end every day. At age 19, he started writing original material and playing guitar. He started performing at venues in the Birmingham, Nashville and north Georgia regions, playing in clubs and restaurants 1-3 times a week. After 2 years of developing his skills, his band, and his catalog of original music, he released his debut album "Wonderland" on October 11, 2013.
In concert, Phil Dudley is accompanied by two other musicians, his father Jack Dudley and good friend Erich Cousins. His father Jack is a luthier and constructs many of the instruments used on stage including dobros, upright basses, mandoleles, and fretless basses, many of which are passed between Phil Dudley and his father in performance. Erich Cousins is a long time friend of Dudley's. After Cousins left Alabama to serve a 9 month tour in Afghanistan in the late summer of 2012, he returned to Alabama and began performing with Dudley and his father in venues in the Birmingham area. In performance, Cousins switches between his full drum kit and his percussion instruments, which range from civil war era snare drums to the Irish Bodhrán.
