About Us

Welcome to Life, Music, and the Pursuit of Answers with Phil Circle.This is where I and my guests seek positive answers to life's questions, often, but not always, within the realm of the arts. This is also where I encourage on-going open dialogue between all people, everywhere. When I discuss topics specific to music as a craft and business, I'm likely to attach it to something bigger. Music and the arts are the miracles that happen every day. We connect through them. Please send me a message with a question, comment, correction, or idea for a topic. philcirclemusic@gmail.com
