Phil Hurley (born
October 7, 1969} is a versatile American singer-songwriter from Potsdam, New York. He has collaborated with many prominent musicians and bands in New York, Boston, Washington state, the Netherlands and Los Angeles.
Singing in rock bands with his brother Steve from the age of eight, Phil was playing around upstate New York professionally by fourteen on bass, drums, guitar and vocals. At sixteen he co-founded
Gigolo Auntswith his brother Steve Hurley, Dave Gibbs and Paul Brouwer. After quickly outgrowing Potsdam the group relocated to Boston, where they caught the ear of the indie label Coyote Recordsthat released the Aunts' first record, "Everybody Happy", in 1988.
After ten years of touring and recording, Phil left the group for Seattle in 1995. His plans quickly changed when he jumped into a van with
Island Recordsartist Tracy Bonham.
After a year and a half with Tracy, Phil stepped away to participate in the fertile Seattle music scene, where he recorded with groups like the
Tycoons, Hulabees, Shuggieand Alex Woodard, and toured with Miles Hunt(of The Wonder Stuff) and Fountains of Wayneamong others. After a year in the Netherlands, Phil currently lives and works in Los Angeles, where he has been touring and playing with Lisa Loeband his country-rock group Stonehoney.
In 2006, he was featured in
Wayne Federman's annual Christmas Show at Largo (Los Angeles) with Margaret Choand Paul F. Tompkins.
His work can be found on the soundtrack of
HBO's "Lucky Louis", Showtime's "Weeds" and the syndicated "Greg Behrandt Show".
