RX the Prescription
Phillip Anderson, AKA Dr. Pheel Good, has always had a passion for music. Growing up in Buffalo NY, he has been singing since the age of five. Although at age five, his audience was the church congregation. However, the love and support he received encouraged him to use his talent to inspire others. Even as a young boy his emotions showed when he sang, this touched the heart of people who heard him. Phillip was inspired early on by Stevie Wonder. Determined to sing and be heard, he sang in the church choir and sang in a boys vocal group called Voices From Heaven. Performing with this group allowed him many opportunities to perform at various churches, Gospel Festivals and even a local television morning show. Phillip spent a lot of time listening to music, he even taught himself to play the piano by ear. His mentor at the time, Evertte Benton worked with and encouraged him to practice in his free time. After relocating to Denver with his family in 1996, Phillip right away joined the church choir and became involved with the chorus in high school. Phillip's deep appreciation for music helped to foster and form the style of music he performs today. He is currently lead singer for the band The Atomic Brass Project. The band has had the opportunity to perform at many clubs and outdoor festivals in the Denver, Colorado area. Being a part of 'ABP' has allowed Phillip to cover some of his favorite artists including Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and Earth, Wind and Fire. Phillip's determination lead him to compete for American Idol where he made it through to the Hollywood rounds on two occasions. The experience of competition has made him more determined and focused on pursing his career as a solo artist. In his first solo project Phillip has been able to combine the sound of R&B and Hip Hop to create a sound that is fresh and commands the perfect dance moves for clubbers. Phillip, along with Rodney Olguin, AKA B.R. The beat Hova, have combined their talents and developed his first CD titled 'Rx'. This project has a few surprises, the dance beats are hot and the slow jams are thought provoking, sentimental and easy to sing along with. 'Rx' is sure to make you PHEEL GOOD!
