An Audience with Roy Phillips the Voice of the Peddlers

Roy Philips

Roy Phillips is the singer and keyboardist of 60s & 70s BRITROCK band The Peddlers.

Discovered by  Frank Sinatra they broke through to the US charts selling 45 million records worldwide - the most sold by anyone in NZ - with hits such as:

Birth, Girlie, Georgia on My Mind, Let  the  Sun  Shine  In, On a Clear Day (this song was recently used in TV's Breaking Bad).

They recorded numerous hit singles and albums for CBS including Freewheelers, Three in a Cell, and Birthday.

The Peddlers enjoyed a hit recording project for 'Phillips' with the Royal Philharmonic orchestra. Suite London - Roy's excellent first major writing concept, which is now a collectors album.

From this point song writing became Roy's main future. He has had over 200 songs published with a lot more to come.

Roy wrote the NZ Olympic Team Song “I Have A Dream” which Beatrice Faumuina reportedly found "extremely motivational".

His  latest  album  Blue Groove  was  featured  on  BBC2’s  Jools  Holland  Show.

Roy  will be supported by the internationally performed Geoff Culverwell Quartet, who are playing jazz festivals throughout New Zealand this year.
