Winning the 11th season American Idol in 2012 turned out to be a bittersweet affair for Georgia native Phillip Phillips, at first it seemed to be all glorious and like a fairytale.
Phillips´ first full-length "The World From The Side of The Moon" debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200, featuring the platinum smash hit "Home".
He scored a top ten hit with "Raging fire" from his sophomore album "Behind the light" from 2014 and has also toured with big artists like Matchbox Twenty, John Mayer and Goo Goo Dolls.
But then things got ugly when he was caught in a legal dispute with his record label 19 Entertainment, the 2017 single "Miles" is actually the first piece of music Phillips was allowed to release in three years and thankfully, the legal dispute is now settled.
Three more singles followed from his 3rd album "Collateral", they are "Magnetic", "Dance With Me" and "Into The Wild".
So "Collateral" makes Phillips feel like a winner again. The new album contains soulful pop songs, beautiful ballads and classic rock stuff. All in all, a solid piece of work that is highlighted by Phillips lovely voice.
