Biography

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.

Lyrics

Barak

Written By: Phil McWilliams

I don't claim to comprehend what's connecting me to you
But I think I understand there's something that I must do
Got so much that we can teach
Open wide and see
So many ways that we can
Be in Peace...
Barak, Baraka Harambe
Let's join together
Make a change and
Make things better
Barak Baraka Harambe
The big wall fell
And where once was war now there's peace
Like water from a well
Now a pipeline brings us ease
Got so much that we can teach
Open wide and see
So many ways that we can
Be in Peace
Barak Baraka Harambe
Repeat....
Oh we are sisters and brothers now
Oh let us be a blessing to one another
Oh Baraka Harambe
Oh Harambe
Barak Baraka Harambe
Repeats...

Peace Song

Written By: Phil McWilliams

Peace in Heaven
Peace on Earth
Peace in the Sky
Peace in the Dirt

Peace in the plants and trees,
and rocks and streams,
the beasts and bees
and you and me
Peace on earth, peace in me

I wish you peace
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
Repeats...

Oh brother I wish you peace
Daddy I wish you peace
Mother I wish you peace
Sister...peace
I wish you peace I wish you peace
Especially you who would appear to be
an enemy to me
I wish you peace
I wish you freedom...

I wish you peace
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti
I wish you peace
Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

Repeats...
