Jonny Phillips (born 11 January 1971, Kendal, Cumbria, England) is an English jazz guitarist and composer.[1] He played the violin and studied theory from the age of five, however he swapped to guitar at fifteen to study jazz, Brazilian and African music. After his studies at Newcastle College of Music, Phillips moved to London where he set up his group Oriole, with whom he has released three albums on the F-IRE Collective label. Oriole are perhaps one of the few groups to feature two Mercury nominated artists: Ben Davis on cello and Seb Rochford on drums.[2] Phillips is now based in South London after three and a half years living in Andalusia, Spain.
