Phil

Phil was one of the most innovative bands to come out of the Greater Lowell scene around 2000. Whatever you want to call them -- emo, indie, punk, whatever -- they were great. And it's rare for such a young band to transcend genres like they did. Though Phil came to an end in 2001. All members went on to various other projects. Bob Mallory (vocals, guitar) went on to play in Sparrows, Swarm and Sing. Mike Wakeham (bass) also played in Five-0-Five and went on to play in The Doppler Effect and Roll the Tanks. Ryan Poitras (guitar, backing vocals) eventually played in ElderMoose. And Justin Ennis (drums) went on to play in The Doppler Effect, ElderMoose, and The Heuristic.
