Brad Phillips

For more than 15 years, Brad Phillips has performed as a sideman for some of Michigan’s most prevalent singer/songwriter acts. From Jeff Daniels to The Verve Pipe to the Celtic-fusion super-group Millish. He has also appeared with May Erlewine, Joshua Davis and played violin for Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Pat Metheny, and Iggy Pop and the Stooges. Brad earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in music from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, where he is now faculty as a lecturer in the department of Jazz & Contemporary Improvisation. He is also a resident artist at the Purple Rose Theatre Company, where he has worked as a composer, sound designer, and actor.

Joining Brad on The Ark stage is his daughter, Alyson Phillips. Having been surrounded by music since birth, she has been singing with her dad since she was able to speak. Alyson is particularly inspired by the music of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Fleetwood Mac, and a highly eclectic mix of contemporary music. In addition to singing, Alyson is a filmmaker, director, writer, actor and had her work screened at the largest student film festival in the world in New York City as part of the Downriver Detroit Student Film Consortium. Inspired early in life by Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds, Alyson is also a competitive dancer in modern styles, ballet and tap.
