American Idol 11 winner Philip Phillips is currently out on tour with this past season’s Top 10. He is also working on his debut album in between concert dates.
In the YouTube video below, you can hear Philip perform an original song called “Take Me Away.” It is not known whether this song will be on his debut album. But he performed this on the radio with Philadelphia’s Mix 106.1.
At the time of this writing, the performance has YouTube statistics of 21.751 video views. It also has very solid YouTube user ratings of 475 Likes and only 9 Dislikes.
As seen from this piece, Philip is quite different than the typical American Idol. He focuses heavily on his guitar work and trying to tell a story with his songs. This might not work as a single on the radio, but it would be a good addition to an album.
