During this period Phil was writing and doing studio work. He performed occasionally with his long time friend and music mentor Sandy Renda, opening for such acts as Patty Loveless, Charlie Daniels and Asleep at the Wheel.
He has shared the stage with Johnny Maestro and the Brooklyn Bridge, Larry Chance and the Earls, Arlene Smith and the Chantels, and The Dubs to name a few.
