Phil stands out not just for his flawless work but also for his sweet disposition and never-ending sense of humor. He has been a mixer at Levels for four years, coming straight from Harvest Music and Sound Design in Michigan. Where are you from? Michigan, but I was born in Illinois. Where did you study? Michigan State. What’s your favorite TV show? Breaking Bad, followed closely by Flight of The Concords. Is that bad? Since we worked on Flight of The Concords? No, that’s awesome. Is that your favorite show you have ever mixed? No it is definitely the iHeartRadio Awards this year, specifically the Arcade Fire performance because they are one of my all time favorite bands. What has been your favorite (appropriate for the internet) moment as part of the Levels team so far? Probably our holiday parties, they are SO fun. We’re all together and no one is chit-chatting about work. We eat, drink, listen to music and laugh. What is something that people don’t know about you that would surprise them? I studied classical piano at Michigan State. At the time I was playing guitar but they didn’t have a guitar program and I needed to play an instrument to be in the music program.
