  • Working with Phil is always a joy. He is extremely musical and always willing to try new ideas. He’s also rock solid with an awesome groove. Whilst his ability as a drummer is unquestionable, he’s also great fun and really sets people at ease. His presence in a session for that alone is worth so much.
    — Charlie Andrew (producer: Alt J, Marika Hackman)
  • Phil is an incredibly musical drummer - a rare combination of feel and technical ability. He instinctively understands what a song needs. If you like uncomplicated, musical days recording drums or percussion and being finished in time for a pint, then Phil is your guy.
    — Paul Pilot (artist/producer/engineer: Duke Special, Beth Rowley, Athlete)
  • Phil has the ability to slot perfectly into any groove and musical situation, playing without ostentatiousness and with a real distinctive edge.
