Phil Wickham

The band from my church was opening for Phil Wickham last night and Crystal and I went down to check it out. The Reality band was fantastic and Phil was brilliant.

I don't know the first thing about music but I do know how to get people to spread the word about a product and one of the things that I think makes Phil such a hit is that he is super real. I've been around lots of artists (both music and otherwise) and one thing that separates successful artists from those who struggle is the way they view (and portray) themselves AND how their fans connect with that. I'm guessing that every single person at the show left liking HIM which does translate into liking his music.

I made a POLL on OSP - In the industry that you are in what percentage of your success is based on your personality? GO VOTE!

I'm stoked because I'm gonna get to hear him again at this year's Alive festival near Cleveland, Ohio! I've gone the last 3 years and it's the best time! This year I'm going to stay the whole time because the last two years I've had to leave early for weddings. If you're in that part of the country you should come and we could even do a little photo get-together at the festival!
