HOLLYWOOD, CA (Gosh!Radio) 2011/9/30 – “Some of the people I would love to record with would be Weezer, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, My Chemical Romance,” says 16-year-old singer/songwriter Savannah Phillips.
At the age of 10 Phillips started to sing professionally. She was noticed by Frank Harris who found and developed the talent of and Joe Jackson, Father MC, Kat Williams.
Phillips recorded her last EP with producer Aris Archontis, who worked with some of Phillips’ favorite artists like Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas.
“I write most of my songs with Jan Smith, but my band has written some too,” says Phillips. “In writing my songs, I get the ideas from the experiences I have in my life. Music is my life. That’s why I love getting up on stage in front of an audience. It’s the best feeling in the world.”
Savannah met Jan Smith in 2007. Smith has a studio in Atlanta and is a notable vocal coach. Smith won’t normally work with anyone younger then 13 years old. Phillips had something that was different that Smith saw and wanted to develop.
Phillips has faced challenges in her personal life. In the fall of 2008 Phillips was diagnosed with a hereditary thyroid disease. Surgery had to be done in the area surrounding her vocal cords. Phillips came through the surgery fine, the only reminder is a small, pink scar. Phillip was back on track to have her dreams come true. Phillips wants others to realize that they can keep fighting for their dreams to come true.
