Album Notes
Neal Phillips is a singer-songwriter with a dry sense of humor and a flair for intelligent, evocative lyrics and melodies. He is known for his thought-provoking and pointedly funny songs, including tunes that have been performed by Bob Zentz, Holly & Glenn Yarborough, and Pete Seeger, among others.

Neal has played and recorded for about 15 years with fellow "farsighted aging folkies" Greg Trafidlo & Laura Pole in the group Trifolkal. Neal's songs have been played on The Midnight Special, The Folk Sampler, Traditions, and other syndicated radio programs.

Neal's song "The Tumbler" (a parody of "The Gambler" co-written with Greg Trafidlo), appeared in Sing Out! Magazine. This song is being performed by Bob Zentz and other folkies and is becoming a cult classic. "One Small Thing," was recorded by Glenn and Holly Yarborough for a nationally released CD. Dirty Linen magazine singled out "Midwinter's Night" as "truly lovely and a keeper."

Neal plays acoustic guitar, bass, bouzouki, and keyboards and sings lead and harmony vocals. He has co-produced several Trifolkal albums and recorded instrumental and vocal tracks for several other folk artists.

On Still Life, Neal is joined by John Seay, Greg Trafidlo & Laura Pole and other friends.

Still Life
This is a wonderful CD. I especially liked "Welcome to the Dance." But it is all good. Nice combination of gentle, thoughtful songs and some livelier songs and some nice touches of humor.
