Brendan Philip is a Toronto based singer & songwriter and OSC Cross’ very first sponsored artist. His unique sound, vocals, and stage presence (in addition to his confident style-sense) make this partnership a natural one, and we are proud to support this incredible musical talent.

Philip’s sound is minimal, coupled with intimate prose, varying between acoustic guitar and electronic music. “I would just like to create music that is like a painting using all the primary colours then smearing all of them together so that each song is a sonic evolution quality of blending all the sounds and words in the songs so that each project becomes a vast ambient space,” says Brendan.

Brendan Philip combines influences from legendary artists such as Brian Eno, David Byrne and the experimental and soulful collectives of Sun-Ra Orkestra and Parliment Funkadelic with the style of contemporary urban artists to create a uniquely original new sound.
