Creamer - LIVE At Daytrotter - March 2018
WHO Is Creamer?
After a decade as a central figure in the bourgeoning Dallas-Fort Worth music scene, singer and songwriter Philip Creamer recently decided to move his young family to Nashville, TN where he would start work on his first solo project. Dovetail, the band he formed with his younger brother and longtime friends nearly 10 years prior, had run it’s course. Creamer was set on making a record that would be true to taste and right from the heart, to introduce his strikingly powerful voice to a new audience. The remaining members of the band went on to form the hit backing band, The Texas Gentlemen. Soon after moving, Creamer connected with Pat Sansone (Wilco, The Autumn Defense) and Audley Freed (Black Crowes, Sheryl Crow).
In late 2016, the producer duo of Pat Sansone and Josh Shapera (Flaming Lips, The Autumn Defense) went to work on Creamer’s twelve-song debut album which features members of The Texas Gentlemen, Audley Freed, Pat Sansone, and Toronto-based drummer, Dave King. Creamer will release Drugs No More in May, 2017 as the first single, along with a music video, directed by Rachel Lichtman.
After a surprise phone call from drummer Steve Gorman (Black Crowes), Creamer accepted the invitation to cover lead vocals in Nashville’s tribute to Led Zeppelin. The collaboration featured over 20 legendary musicians including Freed, Gorman, Sansone, James Haggerty, Sam Bush, Carl Broemel, & Sadler Vaden. In a short time, Creamer has collaborated to put on and perform in tribute concerts to Van Morrison, Joe Cocker, The Band, Elton John, The Beatles, Willie Nelson, The Rolling Stones, u2, Tom Petty, and more.
Creamer toured in support of Wilco in 2017 on the first leg of their Schmilco tour, stunning first-time audiences across the mid and southwest. You can hear Magic on Tastemaker station Lightning 100, and across all digital outlets.
