Phil was born in Seattle, Washington to a small, but musically gifted family. From a young age he was inspired to sing because of his mother's singing in the local church choir as well as around the house.

In his adolescent years, he grew up listening almost exclusively to Hip-Hop and R&B. As a kid his favorite artists were Nas and Eminem, leading him to write rap lyrics in his room alone late into the evening hours. He was also inspired musically by many R&B artists such as Donell Jones, Craig David, Brian McKnight and Musiq Soulchild. As he got older he began listening to all music genres from country to hip-hop from neo-soul to the classics as far back as the 50s.

In high school he joined choir and quickly became one of the leading male vocalists in the school. In college, he realized that music was his passion, however he also realized he had a knack for business. After several traumatic life events, Phil put business on hold to focus on his passion for music.

After a short meeting with Mike "MI" Cole of 2fifty3 productions, (prod. for Neyo, Trey Songz, Omarion, Rick Ross, and others) he began writing and singing daily again, honing and sculpting his sound and style. Phil then spread his wings and landed in Miami, Fl to begin working with Krunkadelic (prod. for Nelly Furtado, N Dubz, Jamie Fox, and others) at Circle House Studios. He would continue working with both MI and Krunkadelic exclusively over the next year and a half.

After writing and recording for nearly two years straight, he began refining his tracks to ready them for release. To test the waters, Phil released "Take My Hand," which was the first song he ever wrote and recorded. It was met with generally positive reviews in the Seattle area and he began finishing and mixing his more developed songs. This eventually lead to the release of his first single of the 2014 summer, "Speed of Light" which was independently produced, written and recorded.

Phil held his first live show in Seattle, drawing in nearly 200 people by himself, for the outdoor release of his music video, "Speed of Light." The initial reaction of the audience was highly favorable leading to the video being played multiple times that night, eventually turning into an all night long party in the Fremont district of Seattle.
