In The Beginning
Since childhood growing up in the church, Philip Pearson has been a musician with a passion for Gospel, R&B, Jazz, and Soft Rock music. Born on the west-side of Chicago, Philip Pearson was trained to be a drummer by his mother Ruth Marie Pearson, who played Gospel and
Jazz along with Jimmy McGriff (Epic Records). Never forsaking his talent and love for music, he would play beats on trash cans, pots and pans, or with beatboxing demonstrating his ability to improvise despite the circumstances.
Music Technology
Philip’s music technology career began during the early nineties when he was a Business Technology Sales Associate at CompUSA in Atlanta, Ga. During this time he assisted producer Dallas Austin (TLC, Pink, Madonna) with recording technology solutions for Austin’s
D.A.R.P Recording Studio. He was also instrumental in working with SoSo Def Recordings Music Technology Officer with recording technology solutions for producer Jermaine Dupri.
Music Industry Experiences
Also during this time, Philip worked as a chef for R&B singer Keith Sweat at his Atlanta (Industry) Restaurant & Bar where he became the first of few chefs to produce parties for Event Plannaer, Jahmal King of S.T.E.P.S. Events, which exposed him to celebrities Dion Sanders, Foxy Brown, T-Boz of TLC, and T.D. Jakes, to name a few. He also became up close and personal with then Island Records President of Urban Music, Hiriam and wife Rhonda Hicks who dealt with him directly for private parties and Sunday Brunch.
Future Plans
In the next four to five years, Philip seeks to create music that will inspire and encourage the masses during times of tribulation, while working for a major or independent label in marketing or music production.
He is currently developing his music technology and music production skills at the Southern Utah University, and enjoying life with his beautiful and talented wife, Deborah in the Uptown Neighborhood of Edgewater in Chicago.
