Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom Navy Veteran, Phillip Broussard has signed with MTS Management Group for publicity and promotion of his forthcoming debut EP release, “Wavelength.” The blues-pop artist hails from Washington state.
Born and raised in Washington State, Phillip Broussard discovered his passion early in life, when his father brought home a guitar. His father’s original intention was to play the guitar himself, but he soon found Phillip picking up the guitar, when he didn’t think anyone was watching. Phillip grew up under the influence of his father’s favorites, Pink Floyd, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. What started as just a few chords, ignited a desire to share his new found passion with the world.
Then, tragedy struck at 18 years old, when Phillip’s father, grandfather and uncle passed away within 6 months of each other.
Phillip put down his guitar and enlisted in the United States Navy, in an attempt to quell his grief. Early on in his Naval career, someone handed Phillip a copy of John Mayer’s cd, “Room for Squares”. This album reignited Phillip’s passion for the guitar. In 2007, Phillip deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom. During this time, he refined his guitar skills…
After his time in the military, Phillip sporadically played gigs in the San Diego area. He relocated to Washington State, where he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Washington in Seattle. He acquired a BA in Finance from Foster School of Business. Phillip’s music stylings have a darker tone, but range from the Blues to Pop tunes. When Phillip is not playing music, he earns a living as the owner of a general contracting business in Pierce County Washington.
Phillip Broussard is managed by Andrea Wong.
