In 2002, while still touring and writing full time with Newsboys along with being a husband and new father, Phil released his second solo album, Bring it On. The juggling of all of these roles led to the decision to put the solo touring and recording on hold. “I realized I could do it all, but just not all at once.” It would be another four years before he began writing and recording for another solo project, the deliberatePeople. album. At the end of 2006, Phil decided to step away from Newsboys to maintain a balanced family life, solo career and touring schedule.

The years that followed were creatively diverse as he toured and got to truly know and love middle America, releasing two more solo albums, The New Normal and Playlist, two kids projects, deliberateKids 1&2, and also starting a new band, Zealand, which signed to Word Records and released two projects. In 2018 he was asked to once again hit the stage with Newsboys and tour as Newsboys United. Zealand was asked to be the opening act – thus the whirlwind began once again.

“It wasn’t until the beginning of 2020 and the Covid shutdowns that I started to realize it was time to refocus on being a solo artist. So after being forced off the road I began working on new music in my home studio.”  Since the release of his first solo project in 2000, a lot has changed, but what hasn’t shifted is Phil’s commitment to creating thought-provoking, melodic songs for listeners who like to listen beyond the sound.
