A musical satirist in the tradition of Tom Lehrer, sardonic folkie Henry Phillips was born November 14, 1969.
As a teen he drew his primary musical inspiration from Billy Joel, penning heartfelt, sensitive songs of his own, but he eventually turned to more comic material, emerging as a popular attraction on the Los Angeles club circuit.
A regular at the famous L.A. comedy nightspot the Improv as well as a favorite of radio's Dr. Demento, Phillips self-released his debut album On the Shoulders of Freaks in 1996
Why Haven't I Heard from You
Hey, Mr Postman
