The Phil Corfield Band is an originals band; music that is lyrical and melodic with folk, country, blues and pop roots.

Phil has been writing songs for 36 years, an endeavour that started in a North Otago farmhouse at Enfield, when he worked nights at the Majestic Theatre in Oamaru. Early success came in 1985 when two songs, ‘The Brass Monkey Rally’ and ‘Misty’ entered the public domain.

The former, released as a ’45’, was played at the famous rally in Central Otago by the North Otago outfit ‘The RagTag Band’. This group was the first to play at the rally. ‘

Misty’ in the same year, won the ‘Gold Guitars Amateur Songwriting Award'. This competition morphed into the 'Mataura Licensing Trust Songwriting Award', which Corfield was a finalist in, in 2014, with the song ‘Earnscleugh Road’. There have been 4 studio albums and around 180 songs written since those early years. The fourth album, ‘Walking Through Worlds’, was released in September 2017.

The band includes multi award winning musician Jean Barkman (harmony vocals, acoustic guitar, 8 string uke) - Dave Coleclough who has an honours degree in music and works full time as a musician (lead guitar, harmony vocals) - John Sule who is one of the hardest working musicians in Dunedin also a member of 'Both Sides Of The Line’ and ‘Humbolt County’ and previously a veteran of many Wellington bands (bass, backing vocals) and Stephen Hudson, teller of tall tales and true from his legendary past and everybody’s favourite drummer.
