My Music


Not Quite Home 2023

11 tracks from the last few years that Karl-Christoph and I wrote and recorded together. These tracks cover some deep stuff and challenging times. We gigged alot together during this time. I became a Father. Karl lost his Mum and almost his life. The pandemic smashed us against the rocks but we persevered. We live nearly an hour away so alot of our tracks were written months apart and in single sittings in the times we could fit in. Our sessions were: figuring out chords and melody, jotting down some lyrics, turning on the mic’s and recorded away. “Not Quite Home” for me is about longing, striving, heading somewhere, unsure if you’ll make it. I think our sound is sincere and true to Karl and I. That’s certainly how we intended it to be. Not Quite Home was my attempt to push what I usually do as a solo guitarist out into a group setting, working with a singer and a band and seeing what we could come up with. I’ve never recorded anything like this so it was a good creative challenge for me.

These Hands 2009

“These Hands” is the 2nd full length album by acoustic guitarist Phil Stormer. From the most intense and passionate through to the most peaceful, this album is a divine collection of solo guitar artistry. The music is raw and unaccompanied but with slick production value and quality, showcasing the fine work of this young man from the Blue Mountains.

Light & Shade 2011

“Light & Shade” is the third full length album featuring the solo guitar artistry of Phil Stormer. The 12 track collection canvases an amazing spectrum of sounds, from a fiery Celtic reel in “St. Albans” through to a delicate tune in “Understated”, out to “Too Cute” a cheeky, and just fun number. Each track an original and in each their own way just beautiful, both guitarists and those with an ear for good music will love this album.

Moods and Moments 2007 

“Moods and Moments” is the debut full length release for Phil Stormer. A collection of gentle and reflective tracks meant for easy listening. Perfect for background music, or for a refreshing change of pace, sweet acoustic guitar sounds from a fine songwriter and musician, lovely stuff.

How long have you played guitar?

For over 20 years, professionally for about 7 of those.

Do you sing?

I do sing, however I don’t have a strong enough voice to sing professionally.

How much do you practice?

That really depends on what is going on around me. If life is busy, sometimes my practice time will really suffer. At other times if I have a big gig or event coming up I will practice hours every day to get ready. That being said I try to practice every day – in fact I miss it when I don’t.

Do you play classical guitar? Are you a classical guitarist?

When I first started guitar lessons it was in classical guitar and I studied it for many years, however in my teens I relaxed my technique a fair bit and began to explore other styles. So I am able to play classical guitar and music and absolutely love the style and it remains part of what I do, but not the whole thing.

Who are your biggest guitar influences?

There are so many musicians who have influenced me over the years, however for the sake of brevity the top three for me at the moment are Tommy Emmanuel, Buster B. Jones  & Tony McManus.

Do you play any other instruments?

Not very well, though I do like to pick up a Mandolin or Banjo every now and again.

What sort of music do you listen to?

Well firstly a great deal of guitar music I genuinely can’t get enough of it. I will listen to just about anything, I love music in all of its colour and variation.

Are you signed to any label?

No I am independent of any representation and my three albums have been funded and released by me personally.

Do your songs mean anything?

Yes they do, very much so. Some are written about someone or something in particular or about a time or situation in my life, others have words, others are dedications or musical gifts to significant people in my world.

Cares deeply about his music, his work, his clients and audience. 

Overall, Phil is a dedicated, talented, established and professional musician who cares deeply
about his music, his work, his clients and audience. Phil’s talent is rare and refreshing and his
music and performances are inspiring and truly entertaining.
