Phillip is one of the best-known names in the Brass Band world. He was born in Bo’ness, Scotland, where he began his playing career with the Kinneil Colliery Band. He held the position of leader with National Youth Brass Band of Great Britain for five years. His long tenure as Principal Cornet at Black Dyke was during the band’s world-beating period. His acclaimed series of CD Chandos recordings – The World’s Most Beautiful Melodies – is universally admired for the exquisite tone and musical expression in the playing; these recordings are featured regularly on BBC Radio and on Classic FM. Other broadcast credits recently have included an interview with Richard Baker’s informative Comparing Notes series.
