Capital B is Ottawa musician Brian McPhillips. His life experiences compel him to perform his own original music. He does so with dedication, confidence and courage, the courage required to perform his own original music and by doing so bare his life and his soul to a room full of strangers. Itâs a calling and a craft. â¦ âDrenched-in-sweat-and-emotionâ, Capital Bâs instinctive song-writing talents, powerful lyrics & passionate guitar styling create a unique, signature sound which Ottawa Life Magazine says is a, âBest Pickâ & was, âHailed as A MUSICAL SENSATION by Eric Clapton himself.â
Capital B began at the age of 17 by performing out-of-town and local venues until he was 25. He has toured the area extensively, playing clubs and bars in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Peterborough, and Montreal. Locally he played many of the prime venues of the day including the Ottawa House and the Chaudière Club (Downstairs at the Green Door), as well as many other clubs. He twice performed at Canada's National Arts Centre, once in the N.A.C. Opera House and, in August of 1973, a week-long booking in the NAC theatre.
Butâ¦ At the age of 25 he quit music entirely, selling all his guitars and musical gear. Instead, he pursued a career as a television cameraman, working as a freelancer for several local broadcasters including CBOT, CJOH, Global Television, CBC, CTV, and Parliamentary News Services, as well as several local production companies.
These years held many struggles for this talented singer/songwriter. In 1995, after a 20-year absence from the music scene in Ottawa he bought a Fender Stratocaster and began to re-learn his instrument in a Blues Style. Brian began writing his own original tunes, wrought from many years of real-life experience.
Artistically he decided he must be his own person, not a âcover-tune-cardboard-cut-outâ.
Since returning to the Ottawa music scene 11 years ago after a two decade âretirementâ, he has consistently set his bar for quality original material at a very high level.
For example: At Canada's largest outdoor music festival Ottawaâs Bluesfest, Capital Bâs MAIN STAGE set consisted of 10 tunes, of which nine were his own.
Capital B is âdrenched-in-sweat-and-emotion - Rock & Bluesâ, his instinctive song-writing talents, and his passionate guitar styling create a unique sound. His signature sound, along with powerful lyrics is defined and delivered with intense sincerity and emotion by his strong expressive voice. He didnât choose Music - Music chose him.
His second CD âCompletely Blue for Youâ was 'nominated' into the preliminary judging for the âBest Blues Albumâ category in the 2005 Canadian music industry's JUNO Awards process. That same year several well respected Canadian radio personalities, after hearing âCompletely Blue for Youâ, were so impressed that they now frequently play Capital B on their air.
After years of "being on the outside looking in", Capital B has found that the key to his rediscovery of music and lyrics was, and is, inside himself and is drawn from his own personal journey.
Whether the mood is bluesy, up-tempo, â¦rockinâ or laid-back, "smooth grooves" and "strong lyrics" are the comments most frequently used by audiences when theyâre describing Capital B.
