Singer-songwriters such as Phillip-Michael Scales create sensitive, soul-searching tunes that don’t activate the cheese filters.”Kevin Williams, Chicago Tribune
why book phillip-michael scales?
Phillip-Michael Scales is a gifted songwriter who just happens to be the nephew of BB King. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, Scales moved to Chicago and his original music has not only taken him all over North America, but as far as the Middle East.
When it comes to playing covers, Scales’ soulful take can make an old song you love feel brand new. His sound fits snuggly between folk, pop and soul; demonstrating his knack for thoughtful, catchy melodies. It’s no surprise that he won an international songwriting award in 2013.
He has opened for Kate Voegele, Jon McLaughlin, Tyler Hilton, Crystal Bowersox, and Cory Brannan. He’s also played Musik Fest, NXNE, Taste of Chicago, and Taste of Ann Arbor.
