About CaretakerStudios

Phil is a multi instrumentalist, producer and 'Head Honcho' of CaretakerStudios.

Phil started his musical career by playing violin with the bow in the wrong direction. Yet, when reprimanded by his 'technique', he responded by demonstratively playing the set piece perfectly by ear. This gives you a good indication of how his talent progressed over the course of the next four decades.

Phil embodies 'practice makes perfect' having taught himself the guitar, bass, and keys as a teen before founding and playing in bands in the London music scene in the 80s. Career highlights during this time included depping for the bassist during rehearsals with 'Sinead O' Connor (when 'Nothing Compares 2 U' was number 1), a visit by 'Weathergirls' when running a rehearsal studio and a very close encounter with a record deal with his band 'Chokumchild'. Phil always took center stage in writing the songs and the production of his band's demo tapes (Chokumchild and Kissing Kowalski), which he did single handedly. This was his introduction to multi-tracking.

Though this continued in the 90s, the majority of his experience here was in the Studio, where he recorded himself and others in his own studio with an 8 track analog and made a good living in Amsterdam by busking, with great success.

After moving back to London and starting his family, Phil rekindled his romance with Production and arrangement in 2014, when Caretakerstudios was born.
