Biography

Armed with resolution and an acoustic guitar, Phil Flowers went off on his own with the intention of making music that reflects the anxieties of existence and the integrity of true art through traditional forms. With the release his debut album, People People, which earned him 3 Music New-Brunswick Awards, Phil Flowers did just that. Under the heavy influence of American folk music, blues, and jazz, People People, creates the perfect atmosphere for Flowers’ fiercely imagist lyrics about social heartache, deception, and candour. Influenced by legends such as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and at times Hank Williams, Phil Flowers is not content with the status quo and challenges the conception of what a singer-song writer should be. Whether he’s scatting or growling, crooning or pleading, he brings the listener in and carries him along. If you may chance to bear witness to his live show, you will know that there is something effervescent in the atmosphere. With passion and soul, you’ll be brought to the summits of mountains and so far down into the chasms below. Combining upbeat melodies with thoughtful lyrics that will have you tapping your toe in no time, you’ll be marked for many days and nights thereafter…
