The Phillips Band & WordSmith Records Welcome Travis Stell
On 8/20/2016 WordSmith Records Director James A. Smith and Manager Ashlee Smith attended a Herrin Illinois performance by Phillips. This particular attendance was mainly to sign Travis Stell to a record deal and officially get him on-board with the WordSmith Records band Phillips.
Travis has been with the band for about six months and has really proved to be a great addition to Phillips. Not only does he add more of an edge to the band’s sound with his electric guitar leads but he also started doing backup vocals at some of the live performances.
The contract Travis signed is for a duration of four years and up to three albums. Timmy Phillips and Timmy Phillips Jr wanted Travis for the recording of the band’s debut album called Lineage. Recording has already started with two of the eleven songs completed. Lineage is project for release in 2017 by WordSmith Records and Music Deal Publishing.
Get out to a show! Phillips is currently doing live performances all around the Southern Illinois area and is now spreading to surrounding states as well. You can find current upcoming show dates on the WordSmith Records Event Page.
