Phil Simmonds

Session Musician, Educator

Phil was asked to play for Jessie J after being spotted by her musical director while playing a small jazz gig in North London. Phil is now in demand with his new band ‘Basement Project’ and has joined the BIMM teaching faculty in London to train the next generation of music industry professionals.

Phil stepped into the spotlight in 2011 when his diary became increasingly packed with gigs and tour dates for Jessie J, Plan B and Leona Lewis.

Phil has been releasing music himself, and his latest release, a collaborative EP alongside Nick Brewer, titled ‘No Face to the Words’, can be streamed on Spotify.
