...with Albert Lee

During the summer of '11, Philip was amongst the opening acts for the legendary Marcus Miller, at ‘BassDay UK’ 2011.


During the succeeding twelve months he went on to secure a conventional bass playing role for TM Steven’s UK clinic tour, which ultimately evolved into an annual fixture at ‘The International Bass Guitar Show’, where he continues to proudly endorse Overwater Bass Guitars and EICH Amplification to the present day.

What A career Albert has had, from

Emmylou Harris to Eric Clapton's band,

the EVerly Brothers to Hogan's Heroes.

Just, Mind blowing...his stories equal his ability!
