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 iTunes‘ Top 20 charts. He also has another son, Love for the Summer featuring Loren Gray.
