It’s 2008 and I’m feelin Great

I hope this new year finds you well and happy. I am in the last week of a rather restful winter break. 2007 turned out to be quite a busy year for me: a spring tour with the good ol’ Shane & Shane boys, a fall tour with the Myriad and the David Crowder band (two bands bursting at the seams with good, talented folk), an album recorded, an album released, and everything else that overwhelmed on occasion. So after the fall tour I took some time off and it has been wonderous. Time to be with loved ones, to work on new songs, to go to church on Sunday mornings, and take naps on Sunday afternoons. It created a much missed sense of normalcy in my life. Now as 2008 moves into full swing so must I. I’ve got one more week at home then it’s time for me to head out again. I’ll be in Texas for the better part of ten days, so I’m looking forward to seeing all you Texans out there.
Alright, I gotta hit the hay, I’ll talk to you all soon. Oh, and Happy New Year!

  33. Phil,
    I really can’t wait to hear more of your of your beautiful songs, so KEEP WRITING!… No, really now, I love to lisen to your music, and even if you hear this alot I just wanted to let you know that your music is so wonerful and it ALWAYS puts me in a great mood, no matter what I have done or am doing. When my Mom told me we were going to go see a consert on a cool fall day I had no idea how much it would impacked me…
    Althogh I still can’t see how you would want to come to little old Fresno, and free too (Hehe) … Anyhow, I was so glad my friend’s mom knew you parent’s alittle, and that my Mom hadn’t planed anything else that night. I can’t wait utill I can see you perform again!

  34. Um, hello. I don’t know if this will work, or if you’ll even get this, but I would just like to say that I love your music, and the feeling that’s put into your songs. I am especially fond of “Divine Romance”. I have to say, it’s definately one of my favorite songs, if not my favorite. Very peaceful, and it’s one of the few songs I know that can really get me connected to God. It’s strengthened my relationship with Him. I just want to thank you sincerely for all that you do. May God bless you forever and always!

  35. Hey phil, Josiah here. Check it out, I got the single back. —–Reaching For The Stars

    God bless

  36. Hi Phil!
    I’m Mia writing to you from Sweden. Do you know of Sweden? We don’t have polar bears walking the street but lots of nice people and beautiful land scape. Would you come and sing to us? Minister from your heart to ours? I know that a big festival (the biggest christian youth festival) is interested in having you to come.
    We would take GREAT care of you : ) Please let us know if your interested and we’ll arrange for something to happen.
    Peace. Mia

  37. Happy 2008! Thank you for your music! God Bless you and your loved ones.

  38. I also enjoy Sunday afternoon naps. Glad you’ve had a chance to relax and rest…which is what God did after creating the World. If He can do it…so should I. hehe 🙂 Blessings to you.

  39. I first heard you on the Relevant podcast back in October and I haven’t stopped listening to you since (except for that brief stint of Christmas music in December). Anyway, your lyrics and sound are so refreshing and worshipful. Thank you for using your gifts to glorify God and to help uplift others. Keep it up… you seriously rock!

  40. Hey Phil glad to see that things are good for ya…I can’t wait to see you in San Luis Obispo. God bless.

  41. did you go see Into the Wild yesterday? I thought it was you but didnt want to embarrass you. cheers, hope you are well.

  42. yay rest up philly. cant wait for new songs and excitement =)

  43. I don’t know if you know about this, but you should check out – basically, LJ Urban is sponsoring a project where for every 100,000 hits the site gets, a mason is trained to build eco-friendly homes in Burkina Faso, which provides homes for many who do not have one as well as a livelihood/steady income. I know you are really compassionate, so I thought you would be interested.
