Who Is Phil Naro?
Phil was one of those rare individuals known as a “singer’s singer.” A staple of both the Canadian and US music scene, Phil had become a mainstay in venues ranging from clubs to large performing arts centres and massive arenas. He had just completed the debut album from the band LIPS TURN BLUE (formerly D Drive), which had secured a worldwide record deal and a reunion album with Billy Sheehan & Talas a member in the 1980s.
Phil had successfully balanced an in-demand solo career with several high-profile projects with other superstar musicians from bands such as The Rascals, Vanilla Fudge, Whitesnake, Yes, ASIA, and guitarist Ron Thal (ex-Guns N Roses) as a member of The Platinum Rock All-Stars.
Phil was capable of an extraordinary number of music styles all built around his unmistakably powerful voice. Fortunately, Phil left us with an extraordinary amount of recorded music, which will allow his artistic legacy to live on forever.
