Bobby Phillipps

Bobby began playing guitar at the age of 12. He started by listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan records, and whatever else his parents had laying around the house. But it was when he first heard the music of both Joe Satriani and Steve Vai that everything changed. He started pursuing instrumental guitar music with vigor. Imbued from a young age with a strong DIY sensibility, he set out to write and record every song and instrument himself. This has culminated in a desire to understand more than just the guitar. Guitar remains the focus of his music, but beyond that, he attempts to stay true to all of the other instruments in each arrangement, never relegating one to just background information.

Bobby cites the following guitarists as influences:

- Joe Satriani
- Steve Vai
- John Petrucci
- Andy Timmons
- James Hetfield
- Tom Morello
- Alex Lifeson
- Stevie Ray Vaughan
- Jimi Hendrix
- David Gilmour
- Jimmy Page

Bobby records all of his own music in his home studio, dubbed Soul Style Studio, part of his Soul Style Productions vehicle built solely for his music.
