Shane Philip (Best Live Act - Vancouver Island Music Awards 2012) was born in Toronto, grew up in Ottawa, and went to university in Thunder Bay, Ont. But if you ask him where he feels more at home, and where he imagines he'll stay for the rest of his life, he'll say without hesitation the West Coast.
Philip's journey to this point has been adventurous to say the least. He has lived in Banff, 100 Mile House, Smithers, Gold River, Campbell River, Nanaimo and Ladysmith among other locales. The rootsy singer-songwriter moved with his wife and 3 1/2 year old son to Courtenay earlier this year, a switch that has paid off handsomely for Philip. Artistically, he's never been at a loss for inspiration. But in terms of his state of mind, the move to the Comox Valley has left him more refreshed than ever!
The amazing part of Philip's success? Not only is he a one-man band outfitted with didgeridoo, aslatua, shakers, djembe drums and Weissenborn-style guitar, he is entirely self-taught!
