Phil Naish
Having begun keyboard instruction at the age of 5 under the tutelage of his musician mother, Phil (* 1957) quickly became an adept pianist. From piano he moved toward the cello, studying privately for 8 years and becoming a member of the South Florida Youth Symphony and the Young Artists Baroque Society of Greater Miami. His cello ability earned him a scholarship to Belmont College (now Belmont University). An injured finger ended his cello career which nudged him back into his earlier love - piano.
For three years he was a keyboard player and guitarist for the Belmont Reasons, a public relations touring group. Phil earned a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Music Business. This degree was invaluable in helping Phil learn the studio process from the inside out.
Phil Naish began his career as a studio keyboard player for the likes of Sandy Patti, Steve Green, Boz Scaggs, Dolly Parton, Beth Nielson Chapman - invaluable training which ultimately led to Phil's successful production career. It was at this time that he began a seven-album relationship with Steven Curtis Chapman during which three Grammy Awards were won plus numerous Dove Awards. During Phil's career he has also produced Point of Grace, Carman, Jaci Valesquez, Steve Green, Michael Card, David Phelps, The Martins, Jonathan Pierce, Wes King and Geoff Moore and the Distance. Several of these have gone on to be Gold and Platinum albums.
