A member of Emmylou Harris’ Red Dirt Boys, pianist / guitarist Phil Madeira has produced records for and performed with many amazing artists, including Emmylou, Buddy Miller, Mumford & Sons, The Civil Wars, Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Keb’ Mo’ and more.

His Mercyland: Hymns For The Rest Of Us project debuted in 2012 and yielded a Grammy Winning song for the Civil Wars, “From This Valley”.

In 2019, Phil was inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame . He has also received a Humanitarian Award from ASCAP, as well as a Dove Award for “Best Country Song” .

Phil’s 2018 project, “Providence” , an autobiographical offering of piano based songs, lyrically set in his home state of Rhode Island, has received critical acclaim across the board, with Nashville Scene proclaiming it “ this is some of the best — and funkiest — piano music to come out of Nashville in recent memory. “

2019 yielded his instrumental album “Crickets”, a foray into the jazz world, which opened the door for him to play with his trio at the prestigious Newport Jazz Festival .

The singer songwriter is also known for his multi-instrumental abilities, having played guitar and keyboards on hundreds of records, including hits by Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, and other stars, but his real love is roots music, like the songs he’s written for Alison Krauss, The Wood Brothers, Keb’ Mo’, Emmylou Harris, Buddy Miller, Shawn Mullins, Dan Tyminski, Amy Grant, John Scofield, Mat Kearney, The North Mississippi Allstars, and a long list of others.

Ever the boundary-crossing artist, Phil says that it always comes down to whether or not you have a song.
