Philip Hamilton

(performs with a band but also does sols a cappella) Philip Hamilton is the most exciting contemporary vocalist on the international Jazz and World Music stages. He is possessed with a voice that conveys a Warrior's strength, a Blues man's soul, a Romantic's heart and a Muezzin's spirit. Hamilton is a true original, who has performed or recorded with some of the leading musical minds of our time, including the Pat Metheny Group, Spyro Gyra, Steely Dan’s Donald Fagan, Gilberto Gil, Mike Stern and John Cage. The New York Times calls his innovative singing and composing style, "contemporary and cutting edge". His solo performances challenge audiences to redefine the voice and celebrate its limitless potential. The Village Voice noted of a recent Hamilton performance, "Hamilton's masterful voice…presented a tapestry of vocal and musical wonders". His larger ensembles also cross musical boundaries as they take listeners on journeys inspired by the blues, rock, jazz, classical, as well as sounds from around the world. His ensembles, both live and in the studio, have featured some of the music world's best and brightest performers including Greg Osby, Chieli Minucci, John Medeski, Matt Garrison, Bill Evans, Mike Manieri, Richard Bona, Gil Goldstein, Ottmar Liebert and Vernon Reid.
