Philip Bynoe

Steve Vai

BIOGRAPHY

Philip began his musical journey playing cello. As a tween, he moved on to guitar and finally settled on bass. For a time, he studied at Berklee College of Music. And before he was old enough to drink, Philip was playing in clubs and local shows across Massachusetts. He gigged with many of Boston’s finest—including Charlie Farren and Rick Berlin. It was through the latter that he met and befriended drummer Mike Mangini, Mangini introduced Philip his first significant opportunity—auditioning for renowned guitarist Steve Vai. He got the gig and played on several consecutive G-3 tours, which have been hugely successful and continue to garner accolades from fans to this day.

Along the way, Philip had many other opportunities: from playing on The Tonight Show band, to recording and performing with the likes of Slash (Guns & Roses), Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme), and Dorian Holley (Michael Jackson). Recently, Philip went out on the two-year Story of Light world tour with Steve Vai. Currently, he’s preparing to play with Frank Gambale (Chick Corea). Parallel to his rock career, Philip creates and produces children’s music with his band PB & Deb, and plays with L.A. kid’s band, Jambo. Recording original music at home or with colleagues in the studio give Philip many ways to use his talents. And he’s always looking for the next chance to create something great.
