Phillip-Michael was born in Michigan, forged in Chicago, and now lives in Nashville, TN. He grew up with B.B. King calling him "nephew" and calls his music "Dive Bar Soul," a blend of Indie Rock storytelling and the passion of the blues. In February of 2022, he caught the attention of Ellen Degeneres who featured him on her show.

    Phillip-Michael Scales

    Soul-Blues

    Growing up, Phillip-Michael Scales didn't understand what it meant that his aunt's close friend, the guitar player who called him "Nephew" and he called "Uncle B," was B.B. King. Once Phillip-Michael began guitar less, the significance became so clear that he shied away from soloing and most things blues. Instead, he fell in love with songwriting when an English teacher told him "A great writer can make their reader identify with anyone." The trouble was he couldn't find his story in the blues.

    With a fierce independent streak and a passion for performing, Scales fronted his own indie bands, wrote and recorded his own music, and worked to make a name for himself on his own terms. All the while, his "Uncle B" just smiled a knowing smile and encouraged him to "stay with it." Their relationship grew closer as Scales began to discover "the blues" in his personal and professional life.

    When his Uncle B passed away, Scales began incorporating more of the blues into his music as a way to honor him. "These days I'm finding more of my story in the blues. A lot has led me here between politics, my identity, and the idea of Legacy." The result is a sound he calls "Dive Bar Soul" which takes a bit of indie rock storytelling and couples it with the passion of the blues.

    His single "Find a Way" attracted national radio attention in 2022 and garnered an invite to perform on the Ellen Degeneres Show. His music has taken him all the way to the Middle East, as well as festivals across Europe and North America. He has opened for Milky Chance, Jerry Cantrell (Alice In Chains), Caravan Palace, Fantastic Negrito, The New Respects, Anderson East, Guster, The Record Company, and Cory Brannan.
