Phil D'Agostino

If you follow the Philadelphia roots-rock scene over the past decade, you've undoubtedly seen Phil D'Agostino play bass. At various turns, he's performed with XPN favorites Hezekiah Jones, Chris Kasper, Mason Porter, Scot Sax, The Great Unknown, The Spinning Leaves and many more.

Somehow, in between all his other various musical commitments – which also includes working as a music teacher and recording as a session bassist – D'Agostino has found time to write and record his own songs. This fall he released Inlets, his latest solo outing and most sophisticated work, reaching beyond his folk-Americana comfort zone and into the more complex sounds and structures of funk, jazz and tropicalia. You can read more about the record, and the parks and waterways of Philly that inspired it, in his recent interview on The Key. This Friday, he joins us for a special holiday Free at Noon performance upstairs at World Café Live.
