Cory Phillips & the Band of Light is a 5-to-8 piece group of Lawrence/Kansas City's most exciting and talented players performing original soul/r&b and funk/disco music.  Phillips also performs solo with a poetic, classic acoustic soul sound for smaller venues.

 

Cory Phillips is unique natural: a sensual, soulful singer of rare touch, quality, wisdom, talent, and skill - with acoustic guitar prowess only rivaled by his memorable voice.  His extensive catalog expresses a broad range of musicology and influence.  

As a solo performer his music warms with a rootsy soul quality burning with 70's acoustic pop woodiness and desert moon-worship.  These new classics are spun with gold and poetry throughout.  

As the commanding leader of the bedroom funk-disco and r&b eight-piece Cory Phillips & the Band of Light, his sultry songs raze a party with unapologetically retro jams that drip with sex.  The group mirrors Phillips’ fire dance with their own seasoned acrobatics.  Guitarist Michael Hamm (Sunu, Play Dead, the Band That Saved the World), keyboardist Nate Holt (Asterales, Maria the Mexican, Heavy Petty), bassist Mario Vlasic (Sunu, Low Pressure System), and long-time colleague and drummer Chel Rich (Half Tiger Half Bear, The Mad Kings) are the Band of Light, capable of reaching every sensual dynamic in the catalog with masterful precision and bite. Their seductive live shows keep audiences swooning to tender anthems and love sexsplosions, the prowl and excitement of which were miraculously captured on their new studio album, a dirty bouquet of groove, pop, and soul called SEXTHIRSTYLOVEHUNGER
