Phil Dollard

Originally from Rochester, NY, I've been living in the Westchester, County/Lower Hudson Valley region for some time now, soaking up the rich history, culture and musical influences of this area. Child of the '60's and '70's as I am, I cut my musical teeth with the works of Dylan, The Stones, Neil Young, the Beatles, Van Morrison, CCR, The Band, Leonard Cohen, Led Zeppelin and others. More recently, I've been studying the works of the old pre-war blues masters such as Blind Willie McTell, Mississippi John Hurt, Rev. Gary Davis, Lightnin' Hopkins, Robert Johnson. 

"I've had the good fortune to have had some guitar teachers who have helped me hone my musical chops as well as talented musical friends with whom I've played who continue to keep me enthused about playing and writing." -Phil Dollard

Soulia and The Sultans

Soulia and the Sultans spring from a tradition of female fronted jazz bands where the chanteuse recounts the tales of The Great American Songbook. Backed by a versatile and highly capable gentlemen’s band, Soulia breathes modern sensibility into a carefully culled repertoire of songs that are at once sultry, playful, and not altogether expected. From the starry eyed No Moon at All a la Julie London, to Julia Lee’s bluesy King Size Papa, or Jobim's hypnotic Corcovado, listeners are taken on an evocative musical journey. The results are intimate and authentic, at once conjuring the nocturnal spirit of nightclubs and gin joints from days gone by, while telling a new, yet timeless story through that lens
