Flint Jazz Festival: Phil Denny
August 8, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Since emerging onto the smooth jazz scene in 2012 much traction has been made by the efforts of saxophonist and businessman, Phil Denny. Some might describe him as a people’s musician having developed a very active and loyal fan base even before the release of his internationally recognized 2012 debut, Crossover; an album which has already earned him two Billboard charted hits. A buzz has been rippling from coast to coast as either his music or marketing prowess reaches those who follow smooth jazz almost always earning him a new fan. Described as a passionate and soulful player who has a way of captivating audiences with his smooth, sexy yet energetic style. In fact, Phil has sold out every show he has produced since the summer of 2012 and continues to build quite the international following.
After spending more than half a decade as vice president for a mortgage broker firm, Phil decided it was time to concentrate his efforts on his passion for music, a decision that has already led to some incredible opportunities. Although no stranger to the stage, he was eager to take his music to a new level and do so independently while relying on his business experience and trusted industry friends to guide him.
