Heeey friends! Below you can learn something about my person, my life and my career. My artist name is Phil Shoemaker and I'm 25 years old. I'm from Osnabrück, Lower-Saxony in Germany. I was born at 16th May 1988 in Osnabrück. I grew up in a picturesque and romantic house nearby the Schelenburg, a water castle in Schledehausen. At our house were some creepy appearances from „good ghosts“ and „bad ghosts“ . A story like a invisible hand on my right shoulder on christmas eve just to give an example. I think that these experiences made me more sensitive to some kind of energies and forces which influenced me and my music a lot. My songs are written and played in English. On the stage I'm singing and playing guitar. But I'm searching for a drummer and bass player to rock out these songs on the stage to the fullest. The demos I made aren't from a good quality but my recording studio at home isn't the best one, has to admit. All instruments on these home demos are played by myself. My style is based on Blues, Rock and Grunge and my influences are Bands like Jimi Hendrix Experience, Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin up to Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Cure and many many more. When I was 13 years old I listened to artists like Korn or Marilyn Manson until my father told me that I should listen to his old vinyl records. First still reluctantly I understood while my first listen of Jimi Hendrix's Song 'all along the watchtower'. 'Yeah,thats it! thats what I wanna do!'- i just thought. This kind of expression, this bloodcurdling cry of the guitar, which causes a big shiver down your spine. This is what will determine my life. So I studied and lived the Rock 'n' Roll Lifestyle and absorbed everything whats got to do with it. I taught myself gradually all the instruments of a classic rock band, as well as how to sing and write. My lyrics are about the big and classical topics of rockmusic, but also a lot of personal and increasingly esoteric topics find their way into my lyrics. Just everything that moves someone in life: mourning, love, fear, joy, self-awareness and so on. I hope I'll always continue to develop, that I´ll be never standing still, that I'll always keep myself open to new musical experience and that I'll have the urge to let other people share with me what I want to express with my music. One of my aims is to perform much more on the stage and to release my first EP or even better a LP.
