Vickie Phillips


By the end of the hour, you will discover some shades of
friendship you had never discovered before.... Each song is
strung on the thread of a story about friendship, like precious
pearls on a string, and the resulting necklace is a comfortable
fit. It is all done so smoothly, so gently, and so lovingly, the
hour passed almost in an instant!

which includes performances of his songs: "Hi, Vickie:
Congratulations on Peter Leavey's lovely (and accurate!)
review! Here's my quote, which I hope is both suitable and
usable: "I saw Vickie Phillips' current show the other night
and had an absolutely wonderful time. Vickie's personality,
skill, experience and choice of material add up to a richly
entertaining experience."

Chronicles

Vickie Phillips is a Hope Diamond in the world of
cabaret singers who are diamonds in their own right. Every
facet of her voice and show fits together into oneincredibly
entertaining and moving whole. I didn't want her to stop
singing!  Short on patter, she lets her voice speak for itself.
Who does she remind me of? The late Peggy Lee comes to
mind as well as the great Julie Wilson who was in the
audience at Don't tell Mama enjoying every second of
Vickie Phillips' show!
-- Ward Morehouse III, Black Tie Magazine

A Musical Journey... takes the audience on a trip through
time and space using the songs of some of the 20th
century's greatest composers... Phillips was informative,
reverent, and wistful when speaking of her European
inspirations, and couldn't help mentioning that she studied
under Elly Stone (who starred in the original production of
Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well & Living in Paris). Phillips
herself had a striking stage presence, with her soft voice,
occasionally belting out a line or two when needed.
