Phylum is jazz-infused blues, rock and folk.
The frontman, Kessler Douglas, 15, is a singer/songwriter who shows his passion through guitar and voice. Kessler has performed as a solo act at several festivals and music and played lead guitar in musicals and other performances. B.B. King, Bob Marley, and Johnny Cash inspire the exceptional songwriting displayed in his songs.
Keeping the rhythm together is 17 year-old percussionist Kips Workun, who brings a strong jazz influence to Phylum. His versatility on percussion instruments and the stage and studio experience gained through backing a variety of new and established solo artists, jazz ensembles, and musicals, give Kips a depth of talent, style, and skill that comes across strongly in Phylum's performances. The influences on his unique musical signature include Stewart Copeland, Steve Gadd and Todd Sucherman.
Holding down the bass line is Logan Lindstrom, 14. He finds inspiration in his talented extended family; their love of music has prompted his involvement in several bands, and led to him to add drums and guitar to his repertoire together with a bit of sax and piano. Logan’s interests range from the Beatles to the grittier sounds of Iron Maiden and Metallica. A strong jazz influence permeates his eclectic style.
