about

PHIL DUTRA MUSIC 

Austin, TX based Singer/Songwriter Phil Dutra spent most of his life struggling with anxiety. Now he uses it to create beautiful pop songs! 

Phil's career spans the last several decades and is inspired by his love of Melodic Pop music, filled with catchy hooks and heartfelt lyrics about life, love, loss and ultimately hope! 

Phil grew up loving AM Pop Radio in New York City. But as he traveled the U.S. and soaked up Soul, Country, Folk and Southern Rock along the journey, his writing reached new levels.  

Now, he takes all these influences and pours the elements into his emotional Retro-Pop sound! 

Phil is the type of Artist who sings with all of his feelings! His entire heart is in every note!

He has created some of the most memorable Retro-Pop tunes of the past several years. Phil’s EP “Right Behind The Rain” has garnered much praise. His song “She Walks Away” won the National Michael Lloyd song contest at the TAXI Road Rally held in Hollywood, California. 

Phil Song “Right Behind The Rain” was placed in the Warner Brother’s Romantic Comedy “Something Borrowed” Starring Kate Hudson, John Krasinski, Ginnifer Goodwin and Colin Egglesfield. 

Phil sounds like REM dreaming of BNL on a hit of XTC 

Reviews 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 
“Our loss is Hollywood’s gain…Dutra’s sunny, shimmering melodic brand of pop and witty wordplay remains intact, even surrounded by earthquakes and ’round the clock traffic jams.” 

-Gorgeous Magazine 
“Phil Dutra has released his latest CD “Right Behind The Rain”-and it’s GOOD. Really Good!!…A great addition to your CD library” 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution 
Phil Dutra- “Talented singer-songwriter Dutra’s sparkling pop-rock is showcased on his recent CD, “See the World,” a beautifully produced collection that displays an impressive range of influences from soul to Beatles-inflected pop.” 

ETC Magazine 
Phil Dutra- One of Atlanta’s best singer/songwriters 

Radio Stonewall 
Phil Dutra -flawlessly produced, very radio-friendly hooks, top-notch vocals that range in style from soul, rock, blues and spiritual-pop, “Faithless” is Dutra’s musical prayer. He not only invokes every living, breathing spirit with his music, he gives it wings. This music definitely flies, and should fly right to the top of the charts. 

-Jon Gilbert Leavitt (Radio Stonewall) 

Creative Loafing 
Phil Dutra- A CD release party for Dutra’s debut solo album, See The World. Formerly a part of the acoustic duo The Singles, who made the rounds back in the early 90s, Dutra proves a capable as lone frontman on his new 11 song set. He overcomes the tendency to slick up the mix with a middle-of-the-road professionalism by offering passionate performances of some truly catchy songs.
