Born in Cleveland, OH, Phil Bellante, as a child, immersed himself in endless hours of a wide variety of music that has shaped his unique sound. “My Mom has always been an amazing poet and my grandmother could sit at the piano for hours even into her late 90s and create meaningful songs. I have inherited those gifts and I felt the strong need to share it with the world," claimed Phil.
After graduating from college with a Business Degree, Phil moved to San Diego and met Aaron Redfield who has worked with the likes of Switchfoot and other artists with Atlantic and Epic Records. Aaron is a gifted musician and drummer and encouraged him to begin recording his songs. “This was when I really began to feel that music is what I wanted to do with my life, I felt a sense of purpose. Ever since then, the doors have been opening, the opportunities coming, and the music and production has really evolved to a place that listeners are excited about.”
Phil was always fascinated with music’s effect on whether it was healing from pain, gathering strength, or celebrating joy. In Phil’s words, ”My lyrics and the overall direction of my music have come from my vast life experiences and observation of others. I have looked under the surface of things in life to try to understand the whys of life. My music simply leads people to places in their soul to help them see things clearly… that is the best way I can describe it.”
J. Logan Stewart has provided executive leadership and navigated the production phase of EP2. This effort has proven successful in Phil Bellante’s sudden rise into the industry.
