PHIL KEAGGY: New Music and Songwriting (Part 1)

Phil Keaggy is known as one of the world’s greatest guitarists. He’s recorded over 50 albums since beginning his career in the late 1960’s and he’s not slowing the pace, even at 68-years old.

Recently releasing a collaboration with Nashville producer and guitarist Rex Paul Schnelle called “Illumination,” the duo have recaptured the fire of early Keaggy classics and penned some new ones especially for this record.

John Chisum met with Keaggy and Schnelle to talk about life, careers, and music and the outcome was so special we had to break it up into two parts so you could enjoy the wit, humor, and devotion of these world-class musicians to the fullest.

John’s conversation with both Phil and Rex proved to be warm, engaging, fun, and even worshipful as they touched on topics as diverse as emoting through their guitars, losing children through miscarriage and premature birth, Phil losing a finger as a child, and writing songs out of true emotion rather than craft alone.
