My Story

I’m Steven L. Phillips of Katy, TX and I have gained nearly 3 decades of experience performing music professionally since studying at the University of Missouri Conservatory of Music in Kansas City under Tim Timmons and Gary Foster. 

Since becoming a born-again Christian in 1991, my journey to glorify God musically has allowed me to not only serve as a frontman and sideman in many different musical groups, but as an important contributor to a number of worship teams as well. 

With more than 25 years of experience I have shared the stage with artists such as Clark Terry, Gary Foster, Ed Soph, Bruce Conte, Paul Taylor, Phil Perry, Kirk Whalum, and opened up for Acapella, Rick Braun, Marilyn Scott, Alex Bugnon, Norman Brown, and Chris Botti. I am featured on two CDs on Amazon and iTunes with smooth jazz group Sojourn and contemporary keyboardist/composer Chris Brisciano. The latest release, Second Take, also features international drum superstar Dave Weckl. While I currently perform regularly with Austin's premier party and gala band, Groove Knight, I also perform as a solo saxophonist, using professional backing tracks. From house shows to small venues and cocktail hours, I’ve got you covered. I am also available for select freelance opportunities and studio recording. Please contact me for rates and availability.
