Background: Phillip Lackey grew up in a rich musical enviroment. His Mother and Grandmother both played the organ and the piano in a Pentecostal church. His older brother and his cousins played a lot of music so he had exposure to Oscar Peterson, Miles Davis, Weather Report, and Herbie Hancock on one hand, and the music of Hendrix, Earth Wind & fire, Mother's Finest, and the OJays on the other.
