Mike Phillips continues to display his unique combination of Jazz and R&B. The new single is the remake of the classic Slave hit Watching You from his latest album Pulling Off The Covers. Mike’s version includes a lead vocal from R&B superstar Brian McKnight.
In the music video, Mike and his band perform the song on a sound stage on the West Coast, and Brian is inserted with his impassioned vocals from his home on the East Coast. Just as with Mike’s previous video for the song Flava In Ya Ear (remix), he shows how artists can still be creative even during a pandemic and quarantine.
Pulling Off The Covers features collaborations with many of Mike’s friends including Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, PJ Morton, Raheem Devaughn, Avery*Sunshine, Eric Roberson, and Trombone Shorty.
