The release of Spirit Rising is certainly a culmination of the undeniable experience he has accumulated
thus far, reaffirming his status as one of the best electric guitarists on the planet right now.
“To me, rock, blues, jazz and hip-hop all come from the same family tree,” Sayce says. “So I most often
describe my sound as roots music because it contains influences from all of those elements.”
The legendary Jeff Healey took Philip Sayce under his wing in the late 1990s. After years of touring the
world as a member of Healey’s band, Sayce relocated permanently to Los Angeles where he landed a
four-year gig with Melissa Etheridge before officially launching an independent solo career in 2009 with
the album Peace Machine . His subsequent albums firmly established a rabid fan base in Europe, where
he toured with the likes of ZZ Top and Deep Purple.
All of this eventually got the attention of Warner Music Canada with whom Sayce signed and debut the
album Influence, containing his cover of "I'd Love To Change The World" which became a Top 20 active
rock radio hit in Canada. Sayce resides in Los Angeles, CA.
Currently booking shows in the USA and Canada, along with upcoming touring dates across Europe, the
UK and Indonesia. He also performs the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, Montreal Jazz Festival, and countless
additional international headlining shows.
