Über Phil Keaggy
Phil Keaggy is impossible to pigeonhole: he's an appealing acoustic presence falling somewhere between Leo Kotke and Eric Clapton, but with several stylistic detours along the way. Almost overnight he jumped from playing with Alice Cooper to being a part of early Christian music founders Love Song, and in the process he developed into a rare breed: a true, gritty, soulful musician nesting in an industry still trying out new chords. Although he has recorded everything from blues bar sets to back porch bluegrass to Sunday morning hymnsongs, Keaggy's signature style -- a gentle Spanish/folk-rock/classical mix -- remains throughout. His music fully captures the spirit of the guitar and is perfect for midnight drives.
