Phil and John were Phil Baggaley and John Hartley, childhood friends who first started playing together at the age of 13. Their performances, which included an appearance at the Greenbelt festival in 1989, typically incorporated music and comedy. Although no longer performing and recording as a group, both remained within the music business: Baggaley went on to establish Christian record label Gold Records, while Hartley moved to Nashville, Tennessee and became director of A&R for Worship Together Records.
The Wood Thieves
Whilst known for contemporary worship music as Phil and John, the duo also recorded secular music as "The Wood Thieves". Their most notable release in this capacity was a single with The Grimethorpe Colliery Band and was a response to announcement of the closure of Grimethorpe Colliery.
