Picking up a pair of sticks at the age of five was an experience that triggered something deep inside Phil Paris. Although he went on to master several other instruments, his overriding passion is still playing drums.
His appetite for drumming led him to study the art in depth in a conservatory in Switzerland. He, then, continued to perfect drumming with masters in London and New York. He gained experience worldwide as an active performer and recording artist, and brought his personal touch and sensitivity to many musical projects. The energy he puts into his playing opened the way for him to join the ranks of several international groups. His playing may be mainly rock and pop-oriented, but his solid drumming and fat sound, also, has been adopted by various hip-hop projects. As an independent touring and session artist, Phil works in several different musical spheres, and offers his services for individual gigs, tours, studio sessions, drum tutorials and workshops. Phil’s expertise and professional abilities make him a dynamic and sought-after musician and he is aware of the privilege he shares with others who are able to do what they love.
On C & C:
“There is no limit to the finish you can get and these drums look great. But the most important thing is what is under the hood: The shells! And these are just outstanding. These drums are made with a long experience of craftsmanship, a deep knowledge of drum history, and a lot of heart. Simply said, C&C drums are extraordinary instruments, made by great people. My absolute favourites!”
