Phillip David Hunter-bio

Phillip David Hunter, a native of Los Angeles, grew up surrounded by a wide variety of musical influences. With both parents being musicians themselves, the sounds of jazz, gospel, classical, and popular music were a natural part of life.
At an early age Phillip began to sing, and with his father's instruction and accompaniment his gift flourished. After winning “Best Vocalist” honors for a single performance his senior year in high school, Phillip knew he could take it to the next level, turning professional at 18. A short time later, Phillip began singing with hard- hitting gospel groups such as the Los Angeles Cathedral Choir, The Music & Arts Seminar Choir, and the Anointed-7, further honing his craft. Soon he would sing on the recordings of such artists as Michael Bolton, Enrique Iglesias, and Jennifer Paige. Phillip also landed gigs backing-up Chaka Khan, Brian McKnight, Gloria Estefan, John Tesh, Juan Gabrielle and also had the privilege of performing with
Peabo Bryson in a national tour production of “Raisin” playing the role of Asagi.

While working as a singer, performing in theater productions and touring overseas, there was another facet of his gift that had been in development: songwriting. Growing as a songwriter was a natural progression for this artist whose goal has always been to communicate real emotion. Phillip`s work can be heard on Top Model, various MTV programs, and others. His co-write on the Eden's Crush (Pop Stars) project “One Thousand Words” (Mil Palabras) gave him his first writer's

credit for an album.

Soon after making the transition to Tokyo in March 2007, Phillip was cast in the “Seasons of Love” video with K. As a result he was hired as a background vocalist for live television and radio broadcasts, as well as major venues in Tokyo and Osaka. The next major opportunity came when Phillip landed a gig with Anri singing lead and background vocals, touring, and performing on various television programs.

Phillip has provided vocals for many advertisements, most notably for “Fire” coffee (starring Hideki Matsui) and several Mr. Donut commercials.

Recently Phillip's vocal talents were featured on a major software project for Yamaha.

After living and performing in Tokyo, working as a freelance artist for nearly 10 years Phillip has since relocated back to Los Angeles to establish his new jazz/pop band 'The Advocates' and multi-genre band performing original music, 'GRASSROOTS'.

Whether he`s performing, writing, or recording, Phillip's pursuit of truthful self- expression is endless.

RIP BUNNY, THANK YOU FOR A LIFE OF GREAT MUSIC

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!

Buster Williams
