When Phil created Forever Elton in 2018, he was looking to form an act that would do justice to what he regards as one of the finest pop songwriters of the 20th Century and be a fitting tribute to Sir Elton John. Phil has had much success in his own right and continues to pursue his career as a musician and performer. As an award winning composer, having scored the soundtracks to many films which continue to be streamed worldwide, such as Vendetta (Danny Dyer) and Journey To Le Mans (Patrick Stewart), he also regularly composes music for TV, adverts and theatre. A full list of his movie credits can be found on IMDB.

Having studied composition privately, he also enjoys his position as Musical Director of Fordante, a contemporary classical quintet, that tours popular classical repertoire, film music alongside his own works having been supported multiple times by Arts Council England.

His latest Arts Council England funded piano/string section/electronica fused neo-classical album is being released shortly.
