Andy Phillips & The Cadillac Walk is fronted by renowned guitarist Andy Phillips.
Phillips originally hails from NZ where as a young teen he established himself on the local music scene playing at clubs and pubs around town. Attending the High School that bred such musicians of his generation as the boys from ‘The Datsuns’ and formed a band with his drummer mate Jay Pinfold (now residing in LA and ex drummer for ‘Juke Kartel’ USA).
In his early twenties, with itchy feet, his guitar and a one way ticket, he headed off to Sydney, then onto London where his cousin works at Abbey Rd. Studios and dabbled and soaked up the music scene there for a time, but the cold got too much so back he came to settle into the music capital of Australia, Melbourne – where he is now firmly established as one of the brightest lights on the Melbourne music scene.
In 2013, after a trip to Austin Texas, where he played on a guitar at the iconic ‘Maggie Mae’s on Sixth St.’ previously owned by THE Stevie Ray Vaughan (an offer generously made by musician Alan Haynes, who is the present owner of the guitar), Phillips returned to Oz with a renewed energy and insight and decided to form and front his own band, a lifelong dream of his.
Phillip’s band the ‘Cadillac Walk’ blends classic retro rock hits, high energy Texas blues with some good old fashioned rock n roll to boot plus a good dose of religiously cool originals. The band has achieved extraordinary success in a short period of time due to the magic they create on stage and the excitement elicited form those that experience the band live.
The excitement and exceptional musicianship these lads bring to the stage has punters talking long after the show, often bringing their families and friends to the next show; as a result the crowds just keep on growing! With gigs rolling in and drawing larger and larger crowds, this is certainly a band to watch!
So get your dancing shoes on and your drinking arms primed, the boys are coming to town, hold onto your hats!
Their debut EP ‘Power Of The Rabble’ was recorded early 2015 at Highway 9 Production Studios.
