The American folk, blues and rock ‘n’ roll music of the sixties. “What inspired me then to make music myself, was the guitar-songwriters who captured the spirit of their time and expressed it on the basis of folk and blues.”
Starting from there, Michael Phillips, over the years, has disclosed an own form of musical expression for himself, which combines elements of various musical styles in an independent way. His music, today, also betrays quite a weakness for rock’n’roll as well as for classical music forms (instrumentals).

“I may be European-born and raised, but I’m definitely American-hearted, American-minded and American-spirited.”
