Phil has been in the performing arts scene from a very early age, taking up the piano at age 5 and performing in his first theatre show at 12. Honing his Freddie like vocals and moves for three years with his solo act, Phil had wanted to perform with a live Queen band for some time before coming together with Supersonic Queen
