Ex-OZZY OSBOURNE Bassist To Perform Tracks From Solo Album At Sherman Oaks Gig

According to All About Jazz, former OZZY OSBOURNE bassist Phil Soussan and friends will perform tracks from Phil's recent release "Vibrate" at Cafe Cordial in Sherman Oaks, CA on January 10, 2007 at 9:00 p.m.

Cafe Cordial is located at 14015 Ventura Blvd in Sherman Oaks (Tel: 818-789-1985).

Soussan's band consists of the following musicians:

Phil Soussan (Vocals and Guitar)
John Stack (Lead Guitar)
Johnny Griparec (Bass)
Franklin Vanderbilt (Drums)

Soussan has worked with many artists, including Ozzy Osbourne, Jimmy Page, TOTO, Billy Idol, Vince Neil, John Waite, Steve Lukather, Edgar Winter and Richie Kotzen. During those times he was also active in writing songs for them, most notably, Ozzy's biggest hit single "Shot in the Dark".

Phil recently released his debut solo CD, entitled "Vibrate", a collection of 12 songs written over the last couple of years that he has been recording since February 2005. The album, which features guest appearances by many of the musicians that he has had the pleasure of working with, such as Simon Phillips, Gregg Bissonette, Steve Lukather, David Paich, Richie Kotzen and others, represents a cross section of the styles that Phil has become known for.

"I chose the title 'Vibrate' because that is what I would like to describe happening when people hear the record," Phil says. "I hope that the sentiments that I felt when I wrote the songs will resonate the same feelings in the listeners. I would like people to relate to these stories based on my experiences. If that happens then I feel I will have done what I set out to do! When I look to the audience I want to see people react to the songs; they may be affected by them or they may not relate them but I want them to feel something! I think of my music as being provocative in that respect!"

In recent years Phil has also carved a reputation for himself in the world of production and mixing, and this album was completely recorded and mixed by Phil.
