Phillip Phillips, one of the hottest artists on the scene today, makes his debut in Santa Rosa featuring many of the former American Idol star’s biggest hits. The quadruple-platinum “Home,” one of the biggest singles of 2012, introduced Phillip Phillips as a singer/guitarist of both rare authenticity and massive pop appeal. Centering on the American Idol season 11 winner’s rich, raspy vocals and masterful guitar skills, “Home” served as the lead single from The World from the Side of the Moon (19 Entertainment/Interscope Records)—a platinum-selling album that shot to #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart upon its November 2012 release. Phillips’s widely acclaimed debut also features the platinum single “Gone, Gone, Gone” and the Phillips’ penned “Where We Came From,” as well as a host of numbers that flaunt the 23-year-old Georgia native’s songwriting chops. Phillips spent most of 2013 on the road – with Matchbox 20, his own college headline tour and most recently he brought his rootsy brand of rock-and-roll to arenas around the country as the opening act for singer/songwriter superstar John Mayer’s Born and Raised tour.

On The World from the Side of the Moon—a #1 debut on the Billboard Rock Album chart—Phillips channels his soulful spirit into acoustic-driven rock with an earthy yet high-energy sound. Produced by Gregg Wattenberg (Train, O.A.R.) and praised by Rolling Stone as “full of sweeping verses and uplifting power-pop hooks,” the album is mainly comprised of tracks written or co-written by Phillips over the past few years. Along with revealing his easy warmth as a songwriter, The World from the Side of the Moon showcases the dynamic guitar work Phillips has cultivated through careful studying of legends like Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
