PHILLIP  STARK

Singer - Songwriter

I was a part of the Toledo, Ohio music scene during the 1990s and was greatly influenced by local music aficionados and bands. You'll definitely hear a strong 90s foundation in my music, but with all kinds of pre- and post- 90s influences mixed in. I love to experiment as well on anything from my own raw DIY punk recordings to sophisticated recordings done in collaboration with award-winning musicians and composers worldwide. 

I have been living in Madrid, Spain since 2004. 

KEY INFLUENCES: The Cure, The Stooges, Dead Boys, Velvet Underground,  Dead Moon, Johnny Thunders, David Bowie, Daniel Johnston, Elliot Smith, The Raveonettes, Joy Division, Jonathan Richman, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Pavement, Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr, Patrick Fitzgerald, Suicide, Richard Hell, The Laughing Hyenas, The Jesus Lizard, and Brainiac. 

THE RED ANGEL

 

MY ARTIST SYMBOL

The image on the left, called ¨The Red Angel," is from a print I made in high school called "The Angels At War."

 

Because I got caught up in the rat race for decades after school, using this artwork as my artist symbol reminds me to never let that happen again and to always be true and loyal to my creative self. 

Right now I mainly use the"Red Angel" in my communications and merchandise, but I plan on using all the different figures and colors as time goes on.
