The music of Phil Rossi [and the Bad Habit] deals with excess, longing, and desire. Fearless and exposed, Rossi’s words and melodies bring the listener to an intimate place.

The Bad Habit has seen several levels of instrumentation while constantly bringing its unique brand of rock (with stylistic influences coming from jazz, ethnic, and classical music) to the Washington D.C. area.
