Phil Eizenberg’s Bio
Phil Eizenberg, BA
In the early 1980s Phil was a member of three successful rock groups -
Ian “Molly” Meldrum’s, The Ferrets, The Mighty Guys (produced by Glenn A Baker),
and Jimmy and the Boys – with many recordings to their credit, including a
Number One Australian hit (The Ferrets’ “Don’t’ Fall in Love”).
A session musician for the Polygram stable, with many recordings in the Top 40,
Phil had the gig to play the major touring theatre shows around Australia and
New Zealand, including Jesus Christ Superstar, The Rocky Horror Show and Ned
Kelly. Phil has also been a side-man for some of Australia’s leading rock ’n’ roll
singers such as Judy Stone, Jon English, Trevor White and Frankie J. Holden
to name a few.
He studied musicology, song writing and composition at the University of
California (Berkeley), University of New England, and Sydney Conservatorium.
He has produced an Australian country/blues music CDs featuring didgeridoo
and dobro, two CDs under the Eizenberg name as well as country rock albums,
Good Rockin’ Tonight and Faded Memories for Mike “houndog” Winkworth and Paul Ensbey, an album of Australian Poetry for Mark “Bushy” Thompson, and a meditation CD.
With Dave Ovenden, frontman from Bullamakanka on drums, and Chain’s Dirk
Du Bois on the bass, Phil has formed a super group of Cool Grooves and Blues.
Add two percussion players to the mix and, voilà, the music springs forth.
Phil’s group, In the Public Eye, could be appearing in the public eye @
