Greenfest Artist Preview: K Phillips
K Phillips came out of seemingly nowhere to deliver one of the finest albums of the past few years, his debut American Girls . A striking collection of songs that would be quite the accomplishment for a veteran songwriter, let alone a debut album. Phillips followed that up with some scene stealing performances at Steamboat, SXSW and last year’s Greenfest. Phillips’ music is a menagerie of styles, sounds and vibes. Elements of honky-tonk mingle with soul and rock meets folk as Phillips and his deftly able band the Concho Pearls knock each song into a different realm. As a performer, Phillips is a firebrand preaching revivalist determined to get the crowd on their feet and interacting. You never quite know where he will take you next, and that’s part of the appeal. Come see what this wild man is up to at GF15!
