The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College is thrilled to announce that Phillip Phillips and Jon Foreman will perform live together at the Center on January 17, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. Though this is the second time each artist will play in Wilmington, this is the first time the duo will take the stage together.
Since releasing his five-times-platinum debut single “Home” in spring 2012, Phillip Phillips has released two chart-topping albums and taken his expansive brand of earthy, guitar-fueled rock to stages across the globe. With his soulful vocals and ruggedly warm sensibilities, the Georgia-bred 26-year-old saw his first full-length effort, The World from the Side of the Moon, go platinum after debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2014 his second album, Behind the Light, offered up the lead anthemic folk-rock radio hit “Raging Fire.” Phillips released “Miles” in the summer of 2017 as he toured North America with the Goo Goo Dolls, as a precursor to his recent and highly anticipated third full-length, Collateral. Collateral was released January 19, 2018, and also includes the recent single, “Into The Wild” and fan favorite, “Magnetic.” He is currently writing and recording his next record in Nashville and at home in South Georgia.
Jon Foreman’s musical journey began in 1996 with the multi-platinum selling, Grammy Award-winning alt-rock band SWITCHFOOT. His solo career began in parking lots and on sidewalks, playing for the handful of fans who would stick around after SWITCHFOOT shows. It was these “after shows” and the indescribable connection of just a few souls joining their voices in the night, that inspired his first four solo EPs in 2007, one for each season in the year. Those four EP’s were followed up by another series of EPs in the spring of 2015 titled, “The Wonderlands” – featuring 24 songs, a song for every hour of the day. Foreman’s 2021 album, “Departures” serves as the latest chapter in Jon’s lifelong search for light in the dark moments.
