Jon Phillip (born May 18, 1979 in Kenosha, Wisconsin) is an American musician, sober living enthusiast, and record collector. He currently lives in Nashville, TN and is the drummer for Josh Berwanger of the Anniversary. On and off over the last 5 years he has spent time recording and touring with Tommy Stinson, the Paul Collins Beat, and Trapper Schoepp & The Shades. He spent much of the mid-2000s playing drums for the now-defunct California-based twangy rock band Limbeck. He has also played in Drive-Thru Records' power-pop band The Benjamins, The Obsoletes, Ben Weasel & His Carnegie Bandsmen, Shaft, and a punk band in high school called Tralfez.[1]

Phillip was nominated for the Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) award for 2012 Drummer of the Year, but lost to the drummer of the award show's house band. Investigation is underway.

While living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, he co-founded Good Land Records in late 2010.[2]

JP played drums for Josh Berwanger on a Midwest tour in Spring 2014. In June, September, and October 2014, he toured the U.S. with the Paul Collins Beat. In January 2015, he joined Trapper Schoepp & The Shades on drums for a west coast tour opening for The Jayhawks.
