From the producer:
As a record producer, I have never had the pleasure of recording a more talented youngster than Jack Phillips. He is a complete natural on any instrument he picks up and has already achieved more at his age (11 years old!) than one can even imagine. I have never seen such a young person so immersed in and consumed with the love and power of music. He’s become quite well-versed on Fiddle, Guitar and Mandolin, has added vocals and is eyeing the steel guitar. It’s truly exciting to be a part of this amazingly talented young man’s journey and even more exciting to think of where he’s going with it all. Not only is he a child prodigy, but he’s also a well-mannered young man with a great attitude. What an honor to work with him. Keep your eyes and ears on Jack Phillips!
