K Phillips' life could be a Country song. He looks like a young Hank Williams and was named after Kris Kristofferson. He started writing songs at age 5 and began playing organ and piano in bar bands at age 14. At the age of 18, after losing both his close friend and his girlfriend in separate drowning incidents, he decided to pursue his own music. On his forth-coming sophomore LP Dirty Wonder, K has truly found his voice – a combination of Tom Waits' lyrical wit and Keith Richards’ slinky country-rock hooks joined with K’s unique, compelling vocal delivery.
