Phil Hurley

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 Aunts with 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 Records that 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 Records artist 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, Shuggie and Alex Woodard, and toured with Miles Hunt (of The Wonder Stuff) and Fountains of Wayne among others. After a year in the Netherlands, Phil currently lives and works in Los Angeles, where he has been touring and playing with Lisa Loeb and his country-rock group Stonehoney.

In 2006, he was featured in Wayne Federman's annual Christmas Show at Largo (Los Angeles) with Margaret Cho and 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".
