Phil Berman is a singer-songwriter in Cambridge, MA whose warm melodies and toothsome lyrics concoct a unique pop alchemy at the crossroads of Stephen Sondheim, Joni Mitchell, and Benny Goodman. His first record, The Battle of Bunker Hill, transmutes folk to big band with a wink, a nibble, and a quick turn of phrase.

With his honeyed, mercurial voice, Berman creates a musical menagerie of timeless tunes and lush orchestrations hewn from the heart.
