Phil Gammage has been one of the most critically acclaimed rock and jazz guitarists for the past two decades. His compositions and playing have helped define the "downtown" New York music style that has emerged in recent years. He has released several recordings as a band leader under his own name on both American and European labels. In addition he has performed with the popular cult band Certain General off and on since the early 1980s. He performs on several of the band's recordings (including France's 1985 rock "album of the year" NOVEMBER'S HEAT) and has toured internationally with the group.
Songs from Gammage's song catalogue have been highly sought after by music directors for television and commercial use for several years. His music has appeared in television show soundtracks or in commercials on a wide range of broadcast and cable networks iA&E, the Food Channel, TLC, the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, Nickelodean, VH1, MTV, and the CW.
