Philip Nelson to play Chicken Ranch Records showcase during SXSW 2013. Come by and hangout!
On February 5th, 2013, Philip Nelson was asked to sing “God Bless America” to open up the Texas Legends game.
At the #140Conf in New York City, Philip Nelson shares the story behind his latest album “Adventures from the Road”.
Thanks to Jeff Pulver and Alan Weinkrantz for making this possible!
During the “Hollywood Helps Alabama Tornado Relief” live from the ACME Theater in Hollywood, Peter Himmelman called me out on state to sing a song with him. Naturally, I didn’t know the lyrics and had to go to my trusty iPhone to look them up.. YEP.. Busted in front of 50,000 online viewers.
Tonight while practicing, I got the urge to play one of my all time favorite songs by the Smithereens, “Cigarette”..

Submitted for a showcase at SXSW… Got my rejection letter today…
“RE: Philip Nelson
Thank you for applying to perform at SXSW. This year, SXSW Music received and reviewed over 10,000 submissions from bands all over the world. Unfortunately, this means that SXSW must turn down many artists.
With that in mind, SXSW will be unable to offer Philip Nelson a showcase this year. Please be assured that the materials were given full consideration.”
Guess that means I hit plan B!… Anyone that knows me KNOWS I don’t take no for an answer when it comes to things like this!
Wanted to wish all of my insanely cool friends a Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukah! Your support for my album has been overwhelming!
Shout outs are in order to the people behind the music.
Eric Neal and Camille Cortinas, Mike Manning, Peter Himmelman, Marcos Hernandez, Seibold, Wendy Crowe-Johnson and all of my Kickstarter supporters!!
Got a great message from Amy Vallery tonight about my CD.
“Jesse and I listen to your cd every morning on the way to school. We both love it , and Jesse said the other morning , I think I love Philip’s cd just as well as Justin Biebers!!!! I love it!!”
BTW: Jesse is Amy’s 5 year old son. LOL!
I’ve made it! I’ve Made it!!
