Coach Phillips is a Seattle-based indie pop/rock band comprised of Wade Phillips, Jessica Kim, and Chet Baughman, with support from bassist Tom Moskal (of La Fille) and guitarist Sabee Grewal (of Curtains).
Founded in the summer of 2017, Coach Phillips was fused when: Wade and Chet moved into Fremont’s historic Fitch/Nutt house, Jess moved into a house just down the street, a series of house-shows followed shortly after.
The ‘Learning How to Swim’ EP is the debut release from Coach Phillips, and was recorded at the Fitch/Nutt house with the help of former bassist and chicago-based recording engineer Justice Reed; the EP is characterized by guitar-driven songs which feature a mix of witty, romantic, and melancholic lyrics that tackle life’s numerous growing pains.
