In New York, early 1980s, he founded together with Barry "Scratchy" Myers (tour DJ of The Clash) and Marcia Schofield (ex-keyboarder of The Fall) the post-punk band Khmer Rouge.
One year later Paperhouse Records put out his album Backwoods Crucifixion, in 1993 Shoenfelt's second album God is The Other Face of The Devil was released by Humbug Records. Since 1995 Shoenfelt lives in Prague, where he put together his current band, Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross (also: SHOENFELT). With Southern Cross he recorded by now four albums (Blue Highway, Dead Flowers For Alice, 'Ecstatic and Paranoia.com) and one EP called Electric Garden (2002).
Phil Shoenfelt also collaborated with Nikki Sudden. On Sudden's 1997/1998 tour Shoenfelt was the lead guitarist. After the tour Sudden and Shoenfelt went into a Berlin studio and recorded Golden Vanity, which was finally released in 2009 by Easy Action Records.
As well as being a singer/songwriter, Shoenfelt is a published author. His autobiographical novel Junkie Love won a "Firecracker Alternative Books Awards 2002". The novel is available in original English, Czech and Italian languages.
Phil Shoenfelt & Southern Cross released their fourth studio album Paranoia.com on 1 November 2010. This album contains nine new songs and a cover version of Iggy Pop & The Stooges' "Open Up And Bleed".
