In the hands of New York-born Stacey Phillips, the resonating guitar, or dobro, has turned into a moderate for expressing a diverse selection of musical influences. As an associate of Breakfast Particular, with Tony Trischka, Andy Statman, and Kenny Kosek, and Tasty Licks, with Bela Fleck, Phillips helped to increase the bluegrass custom to the metropolitan sensibility. Phillips provides continuing to explore the options of his device. Furthermore to performing using a charnaga-style salsa music group for quite some time, he’s performed bluegrass, jazz, Caribbean, and Hawaiian music within a duo that he stocks with vocalist/guitarist Paul Howard; bluegrass with previous Seldom Picture vocalist and guitarist Phil Rosenthal and his wife, Beth; honky tonk golf swing using the Honeydews; and a mixture of jazz and klezmer with Bassology. GUITARIST described him as “among the most popular pickers around.” Phillips offers written many books of dobro tracks and techniques like the Mel Bay Full Dobro Participant and offers filmed several instructional video clips for Homespun Tapes.
