Phil Swann's career in the entertainment industry has spanned over 30-years as a performer, songwriter and producer. His songs have been heard in television, film and have been recorded by numerous recording artists including: Clay Aiken, Lee Ann Womack, Blake Shelton, Neal McCoy, Rodney Atkins, Kristen Garner and Lee Greenwood.

The prolific songsmith released his debut solo album Stale Scotch and Cheap Cigars on May 24, 2011, a collection of smoky, moody original jazz songs. Tracks like “How Beautiful Is The Night” and “Slow Dance” showcase Swann’s warm vocals and cool, sophisticated vibe. “As a kid, I remember staying up late and watching the Dean Martin show,” Swann explains. “I just loved everything about it. In a way, this record is my homage to that time.”

No stranger to the theatrical stage, Phil Swann is the composer of the new jazz-musical, Play It Cool, slated to debut Off-Broadway on September 13, 2011.  The show was selected as one of only eight productions to present at the 2010 National Alliance for Musical Theatre (NAMT) festival in New York City.  Swann is also the composer of The People vs. Friar Laurence, the Man Who Killed Romeo and Juliet - nominated for three Jeffrey Joseph Awards including Best New Musical (recently published by Samuel French, inc); and, DeLEARious, 2009 Garland Award winner for Best New Score.
