"Vermont native Phil Cohen has devoted years to fine-tuning his craft by playing countless house shows and even spending a year in the subway stations of NYC while he was in nursing school. All of his hard work culminated in April 2014 with the release of his first full length studio album, Before I Go.
The album travels through a wide range of styles and moods: a seamless blend of folk rock, country, indie, and blue grass; dynamic acoustics and persuasive percussion soothe you into a curious world of love, defeat, fear, and self-realization. His voice is strong and distinct; and his lyrics are unique and compelling, layered by the weathered days of lost loves and existential questions. Phil Cohen allows you to bask in life’s daunting moments with hope, grace, calamity, and growth." -Matthew Vitti, Owner and Producer @ Mother Brother Studios
