"Signs of Peace"

Signs of Peace
Artist: Phil McWilliams
Reviewer: Levi Hammock
McWilliams combines sensibilities of folk, bluegrass, country, and pop into an amalgam of soothing and inspiring compositions in his Signs of Peace album. Projecting both confidence and sensitivity in his deep, compelling voice, McWilliams has some inspiring music to offer.
Here’s a few of my favorite tracks:
Peace Song is not the traditional tune you might be thinking. It’s actually a McWilliams original; a bouncy song with a catchy sing-along chorus about peace on earth and peace in the individual
Barak is a fun song with a universally uniting messag, stating “Got so much that we can teach, open wide and see. So many ways that we can be at peace”. This is an upbeat song with an infectious chorus.
Bless This Moment begins as a tender piano ballad with beautiful harmonies, and evolves into a flowing, acoustic guitar driven folk song.
Beloved is a tender song with gently repeating lyrics about seeing the beauty and worth of the ones around us. McWilliams approaches this song with a truly genuine sense.
McWilliams offers a truly unique, yet conventional style. He strikes a perfect balance between the beautifully intimate and the fun, engaging sides of music, while always portraying a message of personal and universal upliftment. - emPower

"Phil McWilliams Does Not Make Campfire Music"

Phil McWilliams does not make campfire music. While his sensibilities are distinctly rooted in Americana and its tradition, his output is marked by an excellent eschewing of the less-is-more approach that sometimes imbues itself into the folk wheelhouse. At times, the layers in McWilliams' music feels as if he has channeled Paul Simon's Graceland. While it's not a concrete parallel, it's the multitude of uncommon folk instruments on each of his tracks that bolsters the listening experience. Never, though, does it feel glommed on or an attempt to hide ineptitude. Each piece of music is crafted with care. Even just a surface listen to his lyrics, it is clear that he has indebted himself to his spiritual beliefs and in his songs, he finds an opportunity to express his appreciation and wonder. It's the perfect record for a listener in search of a homegrown version of divine tribute. Billboard Discoveries

"Rich and Resonant Voice"

He has a wonderful voice; very rich and resonant, deep and strong. I also experience a clarity and heart-centered presence as he sings. For me, this supports and is congruent with the nature of his lyrics and message. Shaina Noll - Shaina Noll


Signs of Peace
Seeds of Peace



A native of Atlanta Georgia Phil grew up playing the guitar inspired by great artists such as Jim Croce and Gordon Lightfoot. After discovering his first guitar under his parents’ bed while on a Christmas gift snooping mission, he wrote his first song at the age of thirteen. His lifetime experience with music spans a wide range that includes rock, bluegrass, chanting and folk.

Combining the organic earthiness of bluegrass, the heart-centered depth of chant styles and the soulful delivery of his own folk style, Phil’s unique music immerses the listener in a multi-layered message of deep love and joy that has the effect of disengaging the left brain to allow the present moment to be fully experienced.  He is an adept musician who skillfully plays the banjo, bass, dobro, guitar, harp and mandolin which he uses to accompany his honeygold voice. Phil loves to help create a profound experience for the listener when he plays.
