Phil Tan, soft-spoken and the measure of calm, is one of the most respected and highly-awarded professionals in his field. Phil began his career at the age of 18, when, with little music experience (just some childhood piano lessons), he decided to focus on music post-high school. He was accepted to the prestigious Berklee School of Music in Boston, MA but he could not afford it. Instead, he chose Full Sail University in Florida and upon graduation, landed an internship here in Atlanta, which eventually led him to recording and mixing work with JD (Jermaine Dupri), a friendship and close working relationship that continues to this day.
Phil Tan is a 3-time Grammy award recipient whose credits include bestsellers by Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Ne-Yo, Ludacris, Usher, Katy Perry, Janelle Monae and more. Phil’s work over the past 23 plus years accounts for over 300 million albums and singles sold here in the United States with an economic impact of well over a billion dollars. We are excited and honored to have Phil Tan join the Callanwolde team to bring this new program to Metro Atlanta.
