Influences and Inspiration:
Having explored various genres throughout his musical career such as hip-hop, chill-out, electronica, ambient, dub, and new age, Phil began to experiment with more relaxing styles of ambient music in early 2015.
His debut album Urban Metta, Vol. 1, was released in early 2016 on his independent label, Planet27Music (now Light Journey Music) with distribution by Heart Dance Records. By late 2017, Phil followed-up with UMII, the second volume in the Urban Metta series.
Both albums went on to be well received and earned multiple accolades including:

Phil's long-term goal is to continue creating music with the intention of healing and enlightenment – incorporating positive intentions, higher vibrations and empowering affirmations that focus on enhancing love, compassion and self-knowledge.
He strives to express a message via his music that there is much more to life than this physical experience, of which he hopes to further explore in future releases. His last album, Fields of Light, released in 2018 on the Heart Dance Records label, provides an hour long ambient journey into the healing realms of 432 Hz.
