* DJ KEVVY KEV *
Former member of Prince and the New Power Generation, Philip Lassiter is a household name inthe music industry and 10 time Grammy Award Winning arranger. To attempt to truly define the bombastic brilliance of this jazz trumpeter turned singer-songwriter would be like trying to catch a bear with a mousetrap.
A multi-faceted, multi-instrumentalist, Philthy's piano is his pulpit as he commands the stage with the bravado of a revolutionary.
With the best backing band in Los Angeles as his army, it’s an invasion of the senses that leaves your body aching for more and your feet tapping the beat for days to come.
Traversing America introduced Philthy to a cavalcade of artists who would help shape his musical career. Aged 6 he unwittingly met hisfirst love - the piano - and began belting out Amazing Grace like no other kidin Mobile, Alabama. Being the son of a preacher - a man “who sweated everyounce until he was red in the face” - Philthy learned how to captivate anaudience and he’s taken that spirit on his own unique mission ever since.
Two decades of gospel, soul, R&B, funk, jazz and salsa sounds were colliding ideas inside Philthy’s brilliantly twisted mind like a tornado fighting a hurricane. 8 years in Dallas, TX were to bring these inspirations to life, under the wing of some of the most talented cats on the planet. Bernard Wright, Bobby Sparks, Keith Anderson and so many others messed up his mind in the best possible way, as his talents opened new doors in a crazy musical wonderland. As an arranger with multi-platinum artists including Kirk Franklin, Ariana Grande, Fantasia, Kelly Rowland, Jill Scott, Fred Hammond, Al Jarreau, Anthony Hamilton, Ledisi, Regina Belle and Timbaland, Philthy scooped 7 Grammy Awards and gained due respect as one of the premier horn section arrangers in the business.
Philthy has been imbued with the soul of a musical saviour and the manic energy of a deliciously decadent devil. With the humor andlyrical flow of Slim Shady before the music biz ate him up, Philthy could be the love child of Andre 3000 and Aretha Franklin, with James Brown laying down the blessing. He gives his life to bring music to yours.He’s been given a gift and wants you to share in it. This party’s just getting started…
