Phil Madeira

Apr 29, 1952

Phil Madeira is an American songwriter, producer, musician and singer from Nashville, Tennessee. He was raised in Barrington, Rhode Island and attended Taylor University, which he graduated from in 1975.

In 2008, Emmylou Harris invited Phil to join her band "The Red Dirt Boys", bringing him into a fraternity of musicians that Harris is noted for bringing together. This group of players includes James Burton, Buddy Miller, Ricky Skaggs, Sam Bush, Tony Brown, Al Perkins, and many others.

His songs have been recorded by Alison Krauss, Toby Keith, Ricky Skaggs, Bruce Hornsby, Keb' Mo', Garth Brooks, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Cindy Morgan, and other high profile artists. His co-writing partners include Matraca Berg, Kim Carnes, Leslie Satcher, Merrill Farnsworth, Cindy Morgan, Wayne Kirkpatrick, Gordon Kennedy, Jimmie Lee Sloas, Mindy Smith, and The Warren Brothers.

Known for his work with acclaimed Buddy Miller, Madeira has appeared with Solomon Burke, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews, Vince Gill, Boz Skaggs, and Patty Griffin.

He has recorded 3 solo albums of material, all critically acclaimed. Well respected in Nashville's inner sanctum of musicians and songwriters, Madeira received the Nashville Music Award (Nammy) for Best Keyboardist in 2000. He also received a Humanitarian award from ASCAP in 1986 for his raising consciousness and money for the Ethiopian hunger crisis. In 2009, Phil received the Dove Award for "Recorded Country Song of the Year" from the Gospel Music Association, for his song "I Wish", co-written with Cindy Morgan.

Madeira is a multi-instrumentalist, playing Hammond B-3 organ, harmonica, guitar, lap steel guitar, accordion, Dobro, percussion and other instruments on projects by artists like Garth Brooks, Steven Curtis Chapman, Ashley Cleveland, Amy Grant, Phil Keaggy, Lost Dogs, Buddy Miller, Julie Miller, Rich Mullins, The Neville Brothers, Owen Temple, Sixpence None the Richer, Freddie Stevenson, Steve Taylor, Terry Scott Taylor, the Vigilantes of Love, Alison Krauss, Vanessa Williams, Newsboys, and Keb' Mo'.

From 1976 to 1978, Madeira was a member of the Phil Keaggy Band, with Lynn Nichols, Terry Andersen and Dan Cunningham. The band released one album together, entitled Emerging. This season led to a long-term friendship with Keaggy, and an eventual production relationship with Lynn Nichols. Madeira/Nichols have produced Kimberly Perry (aka The Band Perry) and Charity Von.

In 2009, Madeira began production on a CD of sacred music featuring artists Emmylou Harris, The Civil Wars, Mat Kearney, Dan Tyminski, Cindy Morgan, and John Scofield, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, Buddy Miller, and Shawn Mullins, with more to be announced.
