Phil Madeira

Music, writings, and art

This is a site dedicated to the creative output of Phil Madeira, a Nashville-based musician, artist, and writer.  Phil has been a behind-the-scenes shaker and mover as a band member (Emmylou Harris & Her Red Dirt Boys, Buddy Miller, The Phil Keaggy Band) and session musician / songwriter (Alison Krauss, Mat Kearney, Old Crow Medicine Show, Buddy Miller, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Daniel Amos, Amy Grant, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, The Civil Wars, Julie Miller, The Band Perry, and many more).

This site is dedicated to what Phil is doing as a front man, author, and painter / artist.  Thanks for visiting! 

BIG NEWS!  Phil is working on a record of all piano songs, a departure from his guitar-based records of the last 25 years.  The record is called "Providence" and it's going to be great!  He'll be going back to his roots in more ways than one.. check out his pledge campaign here.
