Born in the town of Omagh in Northern Ireland, Phil's career started initially as a helping hand on BBC Introducing in Northern Ireland. Music was his passion from a young age, and whilst studying at the University of Ulster, he scooped the BBC/Skillset Young Broadcaster of the Year award.
Phil now presents BBC Radio 1's The Chillest Show Sundays 7pm and the Hype List, and is an in demand live DJ who is behind the successful Slacker club nights and podcast series - he also owns the record label Hometown Records.
He has appeared regularly on Vevo and Channel 4, as well as recently fronting festival coverage for BBC Northern Ireland of the Bigger Weekend and previously also for BBC3.
In May 2019, Phil released his first book, The Slacker Guide To The Music Industry - into which he's poured all that experience into every page, in addition to drawing on the expertise of some of the key names in the business.
