- My name is Philippe not Phil and not Fernendez
- I'm in love with life
- I'm a musician, I do guitar repair work and I own a small guitar company that I started with the best friend music can buy
- I also work with my family in the quality control department of the family business but honestly not too often.
- I'm a New Yorker born and raised
- I work a lot and play a lot and travel a lot for both
- I'm half French
- and I'm half awake
How about you?
moving onward and upward!

Music: this could take a while... its easier explained over tea, but lets just say that when I go to live shows or skate to blow off steam its loud aggressive music (like Glassjaw, The Chariot, Octaves, Melt Banana, Boris, Sunn O)))) Or I go out and dance at shows (like LCD Soundsystem, Javeline, Bear Hands) On the subway or other slower less involved forms of commute I listen to Hip Hop worth paying attention to (Aesop Rock, Rat King, Mos Def, A Tribe Called Quest, Run The Jewels) then I go home and listen to something introspective (like Radiohead, Spoon, Rosenkopf, Blind Willie McTell, Bo Ningen) or enjoy life with likes of (Subrosa, Thin Lizzie, Rush, or anything polyvinyl records) rainy days are good for (Ella Fitz, Sarah Vaughn, Deep Purple, The National) On the reg I usually listening to my friends bands. As for me, I write genre ambiguous songs with layers of melodies and harmonies for my solo project or write mean melodic bass lines you can dance to for my other bands
Food: everything but most forms of liver (I've tried it a million times a million ways, I can only stomach it when it is hot and wrapped in raviolis, and I can finish a serving of that no problem)
something to record it with
something to document the process with
and a good friend to share it with
plus 2 other things
skateboard being one of them...
