PHIL BEE (NL)

Music-Style: Soul-Blues


Phil Bee has been playing on international stages (from Memphis to Warsaw) with his blues and soul related bands for thirty years.

 

He is highly acclaimed in the scene (including several Dutch Blues Awards - best singer, best CD, best band) and is considered one of the best singers of his genre in Europe. Today, the bandleader and singer is on tour with his own band.

 

The "big" audience of millions got to know Phil Bee in the SBS6 show We Want More (the semi-final will be aired on July 31), where he and his band surprised everyone in several shows, including John de Mol Sr, Ali B and Davina Michelle, not exactly the biggest blues and soul fans.

 

André Hazes Jr. is a fan from the first second and Trijntje Oosterhuis spontaneously jumps on stage to sing With a little help from my friends as a duet. The clip for this song has already been viewed more than 200,000 times on Facebook.

 

Phil Bee takes you back to the 60s and 70s with his soul and blues infused vocals. With his own songs from one of his sixteen albums as well as his own versions of covers, he brings you back the spirit of the era when music was still raw and unpolished, supported by a super tight band (6-piece band that can be expanded to 8 or 12 musicians) of top Dutch and Belgian musicians.

 

Pure entertainment with top class soul and blues! 

 

 

Press:

Phil Bee's "Yesterday & Today" gets to the point. Such a long lasting career deserves to be honored with many songs and a total playing time reaching the limit of the CD capacity.

Both thumbs up!

Congratulations on "The Living Room Sessions", Guy Smeets and Phil Bee!

For decades a great asset to the Dutch blues scene.

A fantastic voice, feeling and sound. Always friendly and willing to give others a place on stage. Phil brought our band NO KING together, for which we are also still very grateful to him every time!

(Jelle Wunderink - Guitarist with NO KING)

 

Phil Bee is definitely one of the outstanding singers from the Lowlands. With his grandiose, virtuosic voice, he melds blues with soul, funk and rock in an extravagant way, and on top of that he is an excellent composer. In 2015 he was the winner of the Dutch Blues Awards in the vocalist category.
