“Blue Light” by Phil Q. is a fusion of Neo Soul, Contemporary R&B, and Funk; a smooth sound you and your special someone can get cozy to, especially during quarantine. This song is about how her blue light (phone) can distract her, and how you can be that distraction for her. You can be her Spotify, Instagram, and her number one fan; and show her that Tinder can’t replace intimacy…
Philip spent his whole life learning music without knowing it would lead him in this direction. Music is his escape, his passion and his form of expression, which he uses as inspiration for his R&B anthems.
Phil Q. is his stage handle born out of a love for different themes of R&B; ranging from 2000’s soul and jazz to electronic and alternative. He is also known for his versatility in performance. With any tool or instrument at his disposal, he can put on quite a show.
Starting at age 6, Phil Q. learned how to play piano, sing in choir, and eventually how to perform in front of large crowds before turning 10. Growing up, he loved all genres of music, but he gravitated more towards R&B, Hip Hop, Alternative and Funk.
At 16, he started playing many other instruments such as guitar, bass, ukulele and marimba. Any instrument he doesn’t yet play, he can learn. At the same time, he started producing and writing songs for fun. But it wasn’t until his early 20’s when he started honing his skills.
Recording covers and mashups were how he started sharpening his skills as a producer and a singer. Eventually he began performing and showcasing his work, including his original songs, under the stage name Phil Q. This was when he realized his style and the scenario he wanted to paint for his audience: the date night scene in the Bay Area. The rest is yet to come…
