Reviews

“Our loss is Hollywood’s gain…Dutra’s sunny, shimmering melodic brand of pop and witty wordplay remains intact, even surrounded by earthquakes and ’round the clock traffic jams.”

-Gorgeous Magazine

Phil Dutra- “Talented singer-songwriter Dutra’s sparkling pop-rock is showcased on his recent CD, “See the World,” a beautifully produced collection that displays an impressive range of influences from soul to Beatles-inflected pop.”

ETC Magazine
Phil Dutra- One of Atlanta’s best singer/songwriters

Radio Stonewall 
Phil Dutra -flawlessly produced, very radio-friendly hooks, top-notch vocals that range in style from soul, rock, blues and spiritual-pop, “Faithless” is Dutra’s musical prayer. He not only invokes every living, breathing spirit with his music, he gives it wings. This music definitely flies, and should fly right to the top of the charts.

-Jon Gilbert Leavitt (Radio Stonewall)

Creative Loafing 
Phil Dutra- A CD release party for Dutra’s debut solo album, See The World. Formerly a part of the acoustic duo The Singles, who made the rounds back in the early 90s, Dutra proves a capable as lone frontman on his new 11 song set. He overcomes the tendency to slick up the mix with a middle-of-the-road professionalism by offering passionate performances of some truly catchy songs.
