Phill is an award-winning singer/songwriter and performer from St. John”s, Newfoundland. Since moving to Toronto in 2003, he has been blessed to have shared the stage with many of the city”s most talented musicians! Having grown up in rugged Newfoundland, Phill was exposed to Celtic music and culture at a very early age, but did not truly embrace it until he left his homeland to study music in Toronto and started to miss the sounds that reminded him most of home. Having honed his craft in many a dark pub, Phill quickly found himself in a network of similar minded musicians as he began to craft a sound deep rooted classic rock, power pop, with subtle maritime and Celtic roots.
With the recent formation of a full 5 piece band, Phill Hood and the Exclamation (or Phill Hood!), 2016 will mark the beginning of a new era for Phill with his upcoming release of Travel, his debut album.
Phill’s debut single, “Obvious” , is currently available via band camp.
Phill is also an award winning composer in the Film and TV industry having composed and recorded most of the music for up and coming webseries, Kid’s Town.
