Phil Marshall is a Yorkshireman.
When in Texas, he dons cowboy boots & a flat cap. He carries a fully loaded guitar. His horse ran off.
Phil has recorded four solo albums, two of which at Abbey Road Studios in London, making him only one of a handful of independent artists that have ever been allowed to record there.
Phil has received airplay on stations in fifteen states, which include Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Although having no commercial backing he has had great success by independently selling thousands of CD’s and downloads. Because, well, he's very good, Very very good.
Over the last few years, Phil has performed in sixty-four cities in six countries worldwide performing both as a solo act and with The Phil Marshall Band. Within the United States, he has performed in forty-eight cities in sixteen states including: California, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Phil has also toured extensively in Europe including the United Kingdom, Spain, the Czech Republic, France, Netherlands, MARS, and Holland.
Phil has performed live for crowds of 1 in a car park (parking lot) to 24,000 at the Kingston Communication Stadium at home in Yorkshire.

He has shared the stage with bands like Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Kula Shaker, David Cook, Bens Brother, Kate Voegele, Orson, Nerina Pallot, Mr Hudson, & Harri Houdini.
Back In May of 2007, Phil released a new EP titled One Week, which features six singles. This extended play disc is so unique because he wrote it in one week through a process of automatic writing, and subsequently recorded this work of art within in one week. Needless to say, this disc is very emotional.
The EP as an addition to the more commercial recordings such as Magnolia & Dondonisi show Phil in a steady ascendency to far & wide commercial success as he posesses the most quintessential characteristics of a true & genuine artist whom people all over the world wish to see, hear, & feel in todays musical age. Now and forever, Phil Marshall is the Real Deal.
