Alot can happen in a year. As far as years go, 2006 has proven to be a good one for Philip Scott of Resisting Euphoria. It has come alongside a very joyous occasion. The recent and unexpected dawning of a new song. One that Philip doesn't mind screaming from the rooftops.

To Philip, his part in the musical process is not to become just a great musician, or to be such a clever artist. Philip seeks the deeper meaning to his art by daily pursuing, with passion, the person he feels he is meant to become in his everyday life. It is from this affirmation of life that his songs are stirred. From the very depths of his soul they aspire to sing out.
As anyone who knows him could tell you, he takes his art seriously. If you listen, you can hear it in his voice. You can tell from the way his guitar melodies rise and fall in rhythm... if you listen.

Philip's influences are radiohead, sixpence none the richer, k's choice, team sleep, the prayer chain, smashing pumpkins, jeff buckley, the verve, the apex theory, and system of a down.

Just what sets Resisting Euphoria apart besides the fact that they rock?! Philip is a self-proclaimed believer in the motto " If it doesn't move you, it won't move anyone else." This much is evident in his songwriting. Resisting Euphoria's storydriven approach transcends with such raw, evocative expression, that you can really get into what he yearns for in this human experience.

Resisting Euphoria began in the fall of 1999 when Philip started playing local coffee shops and open mics nights. As the songs began to take on a life of their own, Philip decided that he needed a new way to organize his ideas. As a result, Resisting Euphoria was born.

Orange Productions released a compilation in 2000 that featured a pretty good version of "Approaching Madness with Grace" from the soon to be released album Barrabas. In the Fall of 2006, Resisting Euphoria will release it's first ep, The Onesimus Ep.
