Phylumband BisRock










They were once classified “Phylum Prodigals” to match their own kind of iniquities, so they revealed. In a matter of three years, a stream of awakenings engulfed them. Confessions had it that music touched them and offered a kind of healing from emotional torment. Like water, music created for them a path, a direction that led them to reinvention.

Meet PHYLUM:

IAN RAYE BI√ĎAN (microphones) 
Psychology - University of Cebu

CHARLESTON MIPARANUM (guitar 1) 
BS Law graduate - University of the Visayas

GODFREY GORRE (guitar 2) 
Computer Engineering - University of Cebu

JIMSON CESAR (bass) 
BSC Management graduate - University of Mindanao - Davao City

AXEL ABAC (drummer) 
Hotel and Restaurant Management - University of San Jose Recoletos

Phylum members are “mag-cuzinz” (cousins) and “ka-berkz” (peers) who had their share of ups and downs having grown up at a common neighborhood, thus having known each other so well from childhood. Despite a helping of bitter memories, some dreams that never found their way yet, heartbreaks, and other tearjerker whatchamacallits, they manage to lean on to the promise that music has this ability to change lives for the better. And so they began getting serious about penning songs and executing these in live musical performances to express a collage of emoticons that are as funny and witty, cruel and cunning, passionate and driven as their personalities. Like most struggling musician-performers, they had their share of being booed, sneered, and jeered at.

Phylum says it loud here to patrons, “let the Phylum pincers give you a clutch, as this is the music that will fasten you to the strong belief that amid the world’s backbreaking round of drudgery, doubt and misery, your dreams are just waiting to be realized. Aside from faith anchored in the Almighty, we have allowed music to take control and bring forth internal healing from all our woes. We prescribe the theme of love to you, however nostalgic our brand of songs may seem.”
