Career as a Musician

Deacon Reese Phillippe started his music career amid the coronavirus lockdown in 2020. Due to this, he had to make music digitally though he hopes to meet people and collaborate with them.

I feel like the best records are made in person.

Deacon says his interest in music started when he was listening to the radio in the car with his dad. His dad taught him all the stuff he knew and then he started learning from YouTube videos.

I realized there’s more to making music than just being a vocalist, and that a lot of times it’s the production that makes me feel something. I asked my dad about how it works, and he taught me all the stuff he knew, and then I started watching YouTube videos.

A few years later, dance-music producer, Kygo approached him and released his debut single, Long Run featuring vocals by Nina Nesbitt. The song made it to iTunesTop 20 charts. He also has another son, Love for the Summer featuring Loren Gray.

Phillippe wants to stick to writing and producing songs at the moment because he thinks he has a teenage voice. Will we ever hear his voice? Well, that’s up to him to decide.

During their interview, the Interview Magazine also asked him about his interests in acting. He says he’s interested. Does it mean we’ll see him in movies in the near future?
