The Monologue Bombs is the solo moniker of singer-songwriter Scott David Phillips, a 30-year veteran of the Raleigh NC music scene. His live solo performances are dynamic and intimate affairs, with Phillips switching from piano to accordion to guitar and back.

His voice has garnered praiseworthy comparisons to Paul Simon and The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy. Phillips’ songs combine a poetic eye for detail; a strong sense of character; and a bracing, emotional honesty. Lyrical influences include Bruce SpringsteenRichard Buckner and Lucinda Williams, while the music trods a more lo-fi indie path, with nods to folk rock and chamber pop.

Recent collaborators include The Mountain Goats‘ Matt DouglasKate RhudyChatham County Line‘s John Teer, Whiskeytown‘s Caitlin CaryRachel Kiel, and Schooner‘s Reid Johnson, among others from his beloved North Carolina.
