Back from Thanksgiving with musical guest Phillip Broussard!

Phillip Broussard discovered his passion early in life, when his father brought home a guitar. His
father's original intention was to play the guitar himself, but he soon found Phillip picking up the
guitar, when he didn't think anyone was watching. What started as just a few chords, ignited a
desire to want to share his new found passion with the world. Born and raised in Washington
State, Phillip grew up under the influence of several artists that his father idolized, including Pink
Floyd, James Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton.
Tragedy struck at 18 years old when Phillip's father, grandfather and uncle passed away within
6 months of each other. Phillip enlisted in the United States Navy, in an attempt to quell his
grief. Early on in his Naval career, someone handed Phillip a copy of John Mayer's cd, "Room
for Squares". This album reignited Phillip's passion for the guitar after a hiatus, due to the loss
of his family members. In 2007, Phillip deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and
Enduring Freedom. During this time, he refined his guitar skills.
After his time in the military, Phillip sporadically played gigs in the San Diego area. He relocated
to Washington State, where he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of
Washington in Seattle. He acquired a BA in Finance from Foster School of Business. Phillip's
music stylings have a darker tone, but range from the Blues to Pop tunes. When Phillip is not
playing music, he earns a living as the owner of a general contracting business in Pierce County
