Phil Gammage has been one of the most critically acclaimed rock and jazz guitarists for the past two decades. His compositions and playing have helped define the "downtown" New York music style that has emerged in recent years. He has released several recordings as a band leader under his own name on both American and European labels. In addition he has performed with the popular cult band Certain General off and on since 1980. He performs on several of the band's recordings (including France's 1985 rock "album of the year" NOVEMBER'S HEAT) and has toured internationally with the group.
Songs from Gammage's song catalogue have been highly sought after by music directors for television and commercial use for several years. His music has appeared in television show soundtracks or in commercials on a wide range of broadcast and cable networks A&E, the Food Channel, TLC, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, Nickelodean, VH1, MTV, and the CW.
Throughout his diverse career Phil Gammage has always shown an amazing consistency of great songwriting and great musicianship. When not playing music he enjoys watching sports on TV and swimming.
"Habile mélange entre country paysan et blues urbain...
grand, grand artiste on vous dit !"

"Gammage démontre que le bonheur peut, parfois, tenir dans une simple douze cordes."
"... Ma fanitude sans bornes pour ce type commence franchement à tourner à l'obsession. Deux disques et je commence à être à sec, à court
d'arguments, de superlatifs pour le monter encore plus en épingle. "
