Album Notes
Delbert ( Del ) Phillips was born in North Vancouver B.C. during the same year Albert Einstein died. There is no further connection. At age 4 Del heard his first recognizable song on a Rocket Radio jammed in his ear. It was Johnny Horton’s Battle of New Orleans.
Del, the youngest of 3 boys and a girl, moved with Mom & Dad to Lake Cowichan British Columbia, a tiny logging village in 1960.
He played Tuba in the school band. ( It is in this logging industry environment that Del grew up and relates in his new CD. From adventures of near death and near life up Loggin Roads, to finding a connection between a dead salmon and the first men on the Moon, Del has transcended the mood and history of this west coast lifestyle into a cohesive 3 suite concept album ).

Del was hit in the larynx by a hockey puck at age 18. It was thought he would never be able to speak properly again. A year later he began a career as a Radio Announcer at CHPQ Parksville.

In the following years Del worked at various commercial radio stations in BC. Del was eventually hired at CBC Radio Prince Rupert. During 5 years on the Northcoast Del
hosted everyshow and interviewed hundreds of people. Del worked along side Canadian Broadcasting icon, Peter Gzowski during the spring of 1987, as production assistant
and operator for a NorthCoast National Broadcast. In 1988, Del & Shirley and son’s Arlen & Tynan moved to Denman Island B.C. where Del worked for CBC Radio on contract for the next 8 years working for CBC Radio Western Arctic in Inuvik North West Territories.
He currently works as a Bridgewatch Deckhand & Engine Room Assistant on
the MV Quinitsa for BC Ferries, and has been employed on that boat since 1992.

Del co-produced the first Randy Duncan album Bear Stories in 2000, co-writing the tune "Madelines Eyes" In 2005
Del co-produced the second Randy Duncan album
A Monday Night and co-wrote four of the tunes on the album. in October 2005 Del released his first solo album of music, song & spoken word. A standing room only sellout greeted Del’s first CD release concert at the Denman Hall . Del’s album, a mixture of acoustic & electronicmusic and spoken word was recorded in two small studios, named Water Cottage Audio, located within the confines of his house. Del & Shirley with son Tynan and daughter Jori still live on Denman Island, oldest son Arlen is at BCIT taking Computer Systems Technology.
