E.G. Phillips is a #SanFrancisco based songwriter who creates lyric driven songs with his own special blend of whimsy and cinematic imagery which he uses to give a wry take on dealing with the longings of the heart and the madness of existence. He comes from a country called the Midwest, has a degree in Geography, and his favorites include Bob Dylan and The Kinks as well as #DukeEllington and that crowd (a touch of #TomLehrer is also in the mix). "Ducks With Pants" is the name of his so-called fake (and sometimes real) band.
Phillips has been the "Songwriter-in-Residence" at Bazaar Cafe (September 2015 and April 2017) and a featured performer at San Francisco venues such as the Hotel Utah, Neck of the Woods, PianoFight and Cafe International. For the past two years, E.G. has hosted “E.G. Phest" (most recently at the Lost Church) where a dozen or so Bay Area musicians cover one of his songs for his birthday, giving them their own distinct spin and bringing the local music community together in what is really a celebration of song, the art of performance and friendship.
In early 2017 Phillips released his first official album "Fish from the Sky" — a collection of well worn originals he's performed around the #BayArea for many years.
