After graduating from Napier University in 2006, Philip began his career as a composer for screen with a half a dozen short student films under his belt.
In 2014, Phil got his first two big breaks. Firstly, being asked by actor/director Ricci Harnett to score his directorial debut Rise Of The Footsoldier 2, a sequel to the 2007 cult hit.
Shortly after finishing ROTF2, Phil then landed his first television series when he was chosen to score CBBC's sci fi drama Eve. Written and created by Emma Reeves and David Chickwe, the show ran for three seasons and won Best Children's Drama at the RTS Awards in 2017.
More recently, Phil scored the Lionsgate/New Light Films feature length thriller Matriarch and CBBC's revival of The Demon Headmaster, also written by Emma Reeves, produced by Peter Gallagher with Spencer Campbell as Exec.
Phil won Best Score at the Oxford International Short Film Festival 2020 for the music he composed for the short drama The Box and was also nominated for another Best score award for his latest short film Waiting For Time at the Idyllwild Film Festival 2021.
Upcoming projects include a new animated tv series for Cbeebies and a live action kid's series for BBC Alba.
Philip composes from his home studio in Perth, Scotland.
