    A Chicago native, Phil Doyle began his music career at the University of Miami as a scholarship student. Studying under both Professor Gary Keller and Professor Whit Sidener, Phil performed as a featured tenor saxophone soloist in the renowned UM Concert Jazz Band. During his time at UM, Phil performed with numerous artists such as Dave Liebman, James Moody, Vince Mendoza, John Fedchock, Jim McNeely and participated in the Grammy-Nominated UM album "Romances" with Maria Schneider.

    As a professional national and international touring musician, Phil has appeared on the NBC Today Show, the Ellen Degeneres Show, PBS and others and has performed at venues across Italy, Australia, the Cayman Islands, Amsterdam, Canada, Hawaii, Kauai, as well as most of the continental United States. Phil completed his Bachelors Degree and his Masters Degree at the University of Illinois under Professor Chip McNeill in 2011.

    He has been an active freelance artist in the Chicago land area for many years participating in various recording projects and appearing at venues and festivals all across the city. Most recently he can be heard on an Origin Record Label release "Opening Statement" alongside Chicago trumpeter Tito Carrillo. He has also performed and composed music for independ- ent film and commercial music projects.

    Phil is thrilled to bring his experience and enthusiasm to the department. He is also looking forward to participating in the expansion and continued success of the jazz program at Eastern Washington University.wa
