“Phillips, with the help of his Portland-based, genre-bending musical troupe, Fast Rattler, is developing a sound that is both a revival of classic folk tradition and an inspiring new-age interpretation of a storied staple of American culture.”
“[Fast Rattler] are "...road tested and a flurry of contagious energy"”
"Growing up surrounded by the legendary storytelling and amazing library of his dad, [Brendan] has grown deeply into a heartened appreciation for the power of songs to pass on critical information about who we are as a people. [The Band] gets it too, and their playing is sweet, intricate, and honest."
“While Fast Rattler mines the past for its explosive sound, its music is anything but a direct tribute. Phillips began playing music influenced by Nirvana, Pavement and indie punk rock and created a sound all his own. This includes everything from traditional folk and bluegrass to pangs of modern rock thrown into a sonic stew that is at once grounded in traditional folk and streamlined into intricate arrangements that appeal to fans of both traditional and current music.
““…Phillips has clearly inherited his father’s stature and stage presence, not to mention a book-worth of his forgotten songs.””
