Gord Phillips is a passionate and powerful performer. His blues infused, folk rock style has been compared with the likes of early Rolling Stones and Steve Earle combined. Gord enjoys connecting with the audience. He takes the time to give an intro to his songs. So by the time the first note is played you feel part of it. It's his way of making each performance feel like a unique experience. Solo or with The Assimilators Gord puts on a great show. A versitile and ecclectic sound gauranteed to get your attention and keep it, with driving original tunes and interactive vibe. He gives the folk vibe a sweet rock influenced edge. The song writing has tones of Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, or Neil Young. All big influences for Gord. On stage the room fills with a confident and fun presence from Gord, giving all he has for each show. Victoria, BC is home. In Victoria and the surrounding area, Gord Phillips & the Assimlators are around every corner. Playing any venue from Clubs to Pubs, Coffee shops and Theatre's. "You will be Assimilated. And it will be good" Gord's songwriting is versatile and unique. It is inspired by life. One song will be a rockabilly tune (Sinner for a Day), the next maybe some straight ahead rock (Market), onward to wicked upbeat Rythym & Blues (Punks), takin it down and giving a jazz feel. (Pypers Flower Song), and finishing off with a combination of all that (Oldman War) to make the Assimilation complete. Whether it's solo or with the band, a night with Gord onstage is a Journey all will enjoy. 'Music is my religion'
