Philip Sterk on SoundBetter

Nashville based Pedal Steel player. Recording Credits include: Midland, Ron Pope, Michaela Anne, Bob Lanzetti.

During my over 25 year musical career, I've never shied away from a musical challenge, which is one of the reasons I picked up the steel guitar in the first place. Through the decades, I have been rewarded to work along side a wide variety of artists and production teams, that include performance credits ranging from THE STONE (NYC), to THE GRAND OLE OPRY (Nashville) to THE TONIGHT SHOW (NBC) on television. Not to mention, just about every dive bar in between...Its been a great ride!

In the studio, I have tracked with Grammy Award winning producers, artists and hobbyists alike. This has allowed me to be involved with a broad range of musical recordings; including soundtracks (HBO, Netflix, PBS), jingle work, children's music, songwriter, country, swing, modern jazz, folk, blues, gospel, hip-hop and indie-rock. When not working in the studio, I am excited to be working on the road with the Grammy nominated group Midland.

I am always open to your ideas and want to provide the best tracks possible for your project. I look forward hearing what you have!

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    I have been working with Philip since 2013. Whether he's in a live-band tracking situation, flying in overdubs from his home studio, or performing on-stage, Philip always delivers professional results with his tasteful playing and smooth tone. I've seen him do everything from ethereal psych-rock jams to classic country and nail it every time. Great hang too!

    Philip is incredibly versatile, musical, and one of the nicest, easiest people to work with. We’ve worked on countless projects together and he never ceases to amaze me. The only way you can go wrong is by not hiring him.

    Philip is one of the best musicians I've had the pleasure of working with. Hire him!

Interview with Philip Sterk

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: The most common type of work I get is for overdubs. Often times, my steel is one of the last parts that get added. So, I get the challenge of “finding my place” in the song. Often weaving in and out and “filling the gaps”. Or sometimes, it’s just about creating another layer “color”. That may be all the track needs to lift it all up to another level.
