Philson George Jr.

Philson George Jr. was born on Oct. 18, 1986 in Bronxville New York. He started his music career at the early age of 2. He made music from anything he could find, like, pots, pans, spoons and chairs, etc. As a toddler he would take every opportunity to sit next to the drums at church to bang on them. He couldn’t wait for the drummers at Mt. Bethel Penticostal Church and Faith Redeeming Church to step off the drum for him to climb on. In the early 1990s he played with his father at New Covenant Christian Church during worship. He grew musically at that church, learning how to keep in pocket and tempo.

Before becoming a teenager, he began taking piano and drum lessons. His playing improved tremendously. During his high school years, he blossomed into a magnificent player as he played with the Peekskill High School and Jazz bands. Soon after graduation, he attended a summer program at the Berkeley College of Music in Boston Massachusetts. There, his skills and techniques magnified as he portrayed to be a more discipline player. He became a soul pocket drummer in every way.

Philson is presently the drummer at Faith Bible Church in Mohegan Lake, New York. He enjoys playing, with his father, the bass guitarist, with the worship team. From the early 1990s to present, Philson has played at many churches and with many well known musicians and artists, like Ray Blue, Vincent Corozine, Hiram Garcia and Donald Walters (Pewee). Philson enjoys playing in his community, Peekskill and has received a few awards from the community for his services. He has been influenced by many, and is grateful to God Almighty for blessing him with this wonderful talent and ear for music.
