about

Features eleven songs in all — nine written by Phil Gammage plus renditions of two classics, Blind Lemon Jefferson’s “One Kind Favor” aka “See That My Grave is Kept Clean” and Geeshie Wiley’s “Last Kind Word Blues.” The music swings, it rocks, it boogies, and it conjures ghosts of our country’s past like no other music you’ve ever heard. It is about exploring what is at the heart of the American music experience. The recordings have a vitality and energy that captures each song’s true essence.

“Roots music is in good hands here. We are sure to hear much more good and creative sounds from this band in the future.”
Blues Blast Magazine

“Phil is animated by a faith and a passion for this music, without falling into a dubious attachment to the past and especially by not appearing as a mere revivalist. In this way he is similar to Nick Cave or Nikki Sudden.”

Phil est toujours animé d’une foi et d’une passion pour cette musique, sans tomber dans un passéisme douteux et surtout en n’apparaissant pas comme un simple copieur. Il fait partie des grands à l’image d’un Nick CAVE ou d’un Nikki SUDDEN.”
Ethnotempos (France)

about

Phil Gammage New York, New York

NYC based singer-songwriter and sometimes guitar slinger whose new album is "It's All Real Good".

“Under wrought darkish Americana echoing Nick Cave’s fascinations minus the melodrama… might well make Phil this generation’s Hank Williams.”
~ Trouser Press

“He has the brooding intensity of a Johnny Cash circa Rick Rubin added to post-punk circa 1980 smarts.
~ Rock NYC Live & Recorded
