Philthy
Philthy
Former member of Prince and the New Power Generation, Philip
Lassiter is a household name in the music industry and 7 time Grammy award winning
arranger. To attempt to truly define the bombastic brilliance of this jazz trumpeter turned
singer-songwriter would be like trying to catch a bear with a mousetrap. A multi-faceted,
multi-instrumentalist, Philthy's piano is his pulpit as he commands the stage with the
bravado of a revolutionary. With the best backing band in Los Angeles as his army, it’s
an invasion of the senses that leaves your body aching for more and your feet tapping
the beat for days to come.
As an arranger with multi-platinum artists including Kirk Franklin, Ariana Grande,
Fantasia, Kelly Rowland, Jill Scott, Fred Hammond, Al Jarreau, Anthony Hamilton,
Ledisi, Regina Belle and Timbaland, Philthy scooped 7 Grammy Awards and gained due
respect as one of the premier horn section arrangers in the business.
Philthy is a 14 piece soul/funk band that features a 4 piece horn section, as well as
American Idol superstar Elliott Yamin and Dutch-Caribbean sensation, Josephiine Rojer.
Philthy has been imbued with the soul of a musical saviour and the manic energy of
a deliciously decadent devil. With the humor and lyrical flow of Slim Shady before the
music biz ate him up, Philthy could be the lovechild of Andre 3000 and Aretha Franklin,
with James Brown laying down the blessing. He gives his life to bring music to yours.
He’s been given a gift and wants you to share in it.
