Trust the experts! SING OUT! magazine said, in its enthusiastic thumbs-up review of Easily Amused:

“His risky, rapid-fire rhymes, oddball topics and deadpan delivery bring to mind Tom Lehrer and Loudon Wainwright III.”

And the PASADENA STAR NEWS said of Phil in concert:

“Like listening to set-to-music entries from an obsessive-compulsive’s diary…a really funny one.”

And recently, George Grove of THE KINGSTON TRIO said this of Easily Amused:

“I listened to your CD–not once, but twice all the way through. You’re a weird, wacky, eccentric, compulsive, and slightly demonic talent.”
