Singer-songwriter Phil Maffetone brings a unique musical experience to listeners. He’s performed throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia. His songs have been used in documentaries, commercials and other media. Phil has six albums, numerous singles, and now The Best of Phil Maffetone. He continues to refine his craft with the help of producer Rick Rubin, often recording in various studies such as Shangri La in Malibu, California. Phil writes various genres of music, from folk and folk rock, to rock, country and piano bar, performing solo or with other musicians.

Phil often has friends drop by the studio to help record his music — including John Frusciante (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Brad Wilk (Audioslave/Rage) and solo artist Jonny Polonsky. As you’ll hear, these songs have a variety of vocalists who include, in addition to me, Jonny Polonsky, Steve Bower, Therese Bolat, and Coralee Thompson.

"An aural-neural connection is reflected in the broad mix of Phil’s songs from one album to the next — a catchy blend of original songwriting that creates a subtle, mesmerizing power that kisses the brain and touches the heart. His earliest influence was the folk music of the 1950s and 60s, leading him to ultimately write witty, provocative lyrics with social and personal significance."
