ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Phillip Alexander
Nurtured by the sweet soul stirrings of the church; blue lights in the basement. Phillip Alexander blends these impulses and attitudes to render songs that move—music that inspires, and motivation that takes hold. Phillip Alexander has brought together the strands of his creative life, and composed a group of seasoned and emerging musicians and musical styles to create a soul music project that is funky, jazzed out, sometimes smooth, and erotically charged to arouse sighs, chills and sweat.
Hot?. . .not merely “hot.” Original, Sexy, and Gifted . . . “hot,” certainly, but that’s just a start.
The story is familiar-- black boy from the Midwest growing up in the church discovers he can sing, and soon after is in every choir, talent show and competition in sight. The son of an accomplished studio drummer and Amnesty band co-founder; Phillip had music in his genes. Soul, funk, r& b, Deep House, with Jazz references provided the score for his upbringing in Indiana and New York. This boy can really sing.
Phillip Alexander has the genuine, unaffected emotional resonance of Donny Hathaway, and the manly sex appeal of Teddy Pendergrass, as well as contemporary style of artist like Prince, Stevie Wonder, without pretending to become a facsimile of those soul singers.— all of whom, like Phillip use every part of their bodies and souls to convey their stories of love, life, disappointment and joy. This man is an innovator. Phillip Alexander honors the inventiveness of jazz icons like Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald, and the Duke.
Other cats are working so hard at ‘keeping it real’ and ‘keeping it gully’ that they have lost the art of storytelling, soul soothing and seduction. Refreshing as cold water on a hot day in the city, and as erotically dangerous as a handsome man in a dark bar far from home . . . .he is the real thing. Phillip Alexander has come to share the ”spot “ with new artists like Ledisi, Jill, Jaguar, Dwele, Peven Everett, Donnie and veteran-newcomer Sandra St. Victor have recently blown up with their intensity, originality and musical virtuosity.
Educated in art and design at New York’s world renowned FIT; Phiillip Alexander used the opportunity of being in the music and theatre capital to do more than win international competitions and create his own design firm while in college.
Phillip played the roles of Claridge Conrad White (Ci Ci) in Dreamgirls, and Redemption Angel in No Way Out- off-Broadway productions. As a session artist, his wide tenor range with enormous color and power has graced the projects of a variety of artists, from emergent to superstar: Eternal Sun; Michael Jackson (“They don’t really care about us”), and is a featured vocalist on the: new project by Eternal Sun —lending his distinctive style to get dancers moving in tracks like “Body movin,” “It’s like magic,” and the hit that says it all for this soon to be released album—“Time to celebrate,”
Phillip shares with us his own feelings about his art: “My way of keeping it real is being uncompromising about my artistic integrity in whatever I do, and communicating messages that motivate and encourage. I am being healed as I heal through my music; and blessed as I share my blessings. “So many have come before that feed and lifted me”—“and still more are coming up now”. “It’s a beautiful thing to be right here right now”. “Thankful and faithful and ready!”

listen carefully to phillip alexander debut album. this is a polished, well thought out project that accomplishes what few artists can do: it moves you, it speaks to you, and you will be humming melodies out of the blue - alexander's melodies. as a performer, composer, and arranger alexander offers mastery of colors, moods, cadence, all tempered by his assured and compelling vocals.

Judy Vella

Smooth, sexy, funky and original - this CD will transport you!
A beautiful collection of funky, smooth and sexy songs soulfully and intimately delivered by someone who makes you feel like they're singing just for you. A truly original artist with a voice you won't forget. Where has this guy been hiding??? I'll continue to wear out this CD, anxiously awaiting the next one. Seriously, add this one to your collection - it's incredible!

Stephanie Lang


Phillip Alexander's "Love you Good" is reminiscent of a time when quality music was the norm not the exception. Philip's vocals are smooth, powerful, and enticing. The lyrics are thought provoking, and relavent. The arrangement creative and soul stirring. This album is indeed a classic!

Dean

Birth to a Man is a powerful anthem for the love of one's mother.
I'm lovin this whole CD good. I just have to say the Birth to a Man track is an incredible song. Although it has an upbeat tempo it moves me like a ballad. It's heartfelt and honest to the bone. It should be blaring nationwide on every urban radio station on every Mother's Day! Lovin it.

Carmen

"Love You Good" is Good Music for the Soul!
I simply love playing this CD. It a has a great new sound of music and uplifting singing that will touch your soul in "You Live and You Learn"....then give you a taste of NY House music in "It's like Magic"...Phillip Alexander singing will bring to you new heights in "Can I Talk You" and give you smooth R&B sound in "Neverdreamed" and much more.

Alicia Harrison

This is what real music is about, no doubt.
When I first heard this cd it was tight. I was so pleased to hear what I consider real good back to basics music. The lyrics all make sense, Phillip has definitely got what it takes to keep moving in the right direction with this sensible and passionate style of music. He feels every word he speaks and I can tell he's been there for the experience. I love it and can't wait to download it on my telephone so I can hear it everyday. Congratulations! Phillip and many more successes. Keep up the good work.

Jennifer Wilks

What a revelation!
In a mere 14 tracks, "Love You Good" carries you on a musical journey of life's emotional highs and lows, from the breakup that tears you apart to the breakthrough that leads you to love that is both passionate and restorative. "Shake It" is in permanent rotation in my party, workout, and housecleaning mixes, and, speaking of housecleaning, Alexander must be a genius to know that at the end of a long work day voluntarily taking out the trash (check out the title track) is just as sexy as--if not sexier than--serving meals au naturel. "Love You Good" marks the debut of an artist whose talent is to be savored, marveled at, and definitely, most definitely, watched.

Damien Schnyder

If you love good music, this is album for you
Love You Good is one of those albums that offers the listener a chance to just push play and let Phillip Alexander do his thing. The album is a journey that taps into the deep emotions of love, cherishing tender moments with family, having a good time, heartbreak and enjoying life. Alexander’s passion for his craft comes through on the album as each song, while marked by his distinct driving upper melodic tone, is complimented by an array of soulful backbeats and dynamic harmonies. If you love good music, this album is a must buy.

Jacqueline Smith

A Rhythmic Journey that Speaks to The Heart and Soul
With fresh and stimulating songs like Makin' My Move and Put It On Down, Love You Good lyrically explores the emotional pitfalls and triumphs of daily life. Alexander's mix of up tempo and rhythmic vibes is a breath of refreshing energy and works as a perfect and necessary accessory to any MP3, IPOD, or CD Player.
