“Coach Phillips is a budding Seattle group on the cusp of something truly great…you get the full package with this debut: moments of sparkly, gritty, heavy, and pretty, all tied up with tug at your heartstrings sonnets and overall genuine, catchy songwriting.” – Joel Parmer (Melted Magazine) on 'Never Is Enough'
Originally formed as an acoustic duo amidst a series of house shows, Coach Phillips has since grown into a 5-piece band with two releases under their belt: 2018’s self-released 'Learning How to Swim' EP and a full-length debut titled 'Never Is Enough’. Characterized by thoughtful songwriting & guitar-centric production, the band’s early EP gained modest support from radio and was eventually featured by NPR Music’s Heavy Rotation series prior to the release of 'Never Is Enough' (Den Tapes / June 2019).
"...when it comes to summoning nostalgia, Coach Phillips really hits the nail on the (tape) head." — Nick Brunner, Capital Public Radio / NPR Music (2018)
