Bio

Phyllis is South Carolina's Lowcountry Zen Baptist Songster ... and Rag Painter. She grew up singin the gospel way out in Georgetown County in a big Baptist family. Live oaks, dirt roads, chickens under the porch, homemade butter, and hundreds of cousins. With a head full of Dylan in the early seventies, she left the church to scream rock and roll for three bands on the Grand Strand, left rock and roll in the mid eighties to raise her daughter, and turned into a song magician on a mission. Her inspiration burst, and she landed on the highway in 2001 as a solo songster. ...so these 'mysterious and beautiful works of art' are rooted in the Broadman Hymnal and rock and roll.

"Many of us know how difficult it is to write a song, even more to deliver the message effectively. Phyllis is blessed with the gift of an expressive delivery that enhances the tapestry she weaves with words." -Charlie Tucker, FLAT ROCK FESTIVALS, Hendersonville, NC
