Phil has changed….
No more rock concerts. No more tour buses.
Today it’s about Jesus and Seattle revival.
Phil Fischer was born in April 1969 on an old air force base located of Highway 287 in the small town of Wichita Falls, Texas. His mother did not have health insurance and back in the 60’s air bases would provide medical care free of charge, even child-birth. Immediately after he was born, Phil and his mom hitchhiked to the Arctic Circle and continually moved around during the late 70’s and 80’s until they both made Eagle River, Alaska their home. Phil dropped out of 8th grade and spent the next 15 years of his life moving in and out small towns and villages of Alaska, and the Yukon territories learning to survive the best way that he knew how growing up alone in the wilds of Canada’s rugged Yukon Territories and Northwest Alaska.
In his early teens, Phil worked in Bristol Bay and begin a career working as a deck hand on fishing boats off the coast of Alaska and as a guide in central Alaska. The work was hard and often times lasted 15 hours per day in sub below temperatures further riddled by hard seas. By 16, Phil had earned his way into the position of first mate on some of Bristol Bay’s most successful crabbing crews, long before this career was dramatized by Discovery channel’s “Deadliest Catch”.
As a teenager, Phil once lived in a small 220 SF cabin which is still there today at KM 540 off the Alaskan Highway.
At age 7, his mother gave him his first acoustic guitar as a gift and since then Phil has composed over 400 songs, many of which were sold to record labels during the 90’s.
In 2012 Phil recorded “New Believer” which was never released in the United States but as of August 2015 has received almost 20 million free downloads from this website and his myspace page. While Phil is not 100% native, he is respected by many natives throughout the Canada’s and Alaska and is well known in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Alaska. Phil is known in native communities as “little white bear”, a name given to him by a native family. At 17, Phil hitchhiked to the lower 48 and settled in Portland, Oregon where he discovered .com and started what would become the world’s first web design firm, site #202. That firm built the first versions of many of the .com’s consumers use today.
After the .com crash of 2000, Phil moved to Seattle and threw himself into his music recording songs he wrote during his childhood. Phil’s life has been riddled with trials and tribulations of all kinds, and many of these trials are including in his teachings.
A born loner, Phil spent most of his life alone traveling all over the Northwest territories and Yukon until he moved to Seattle and found happiness when he met a beautiful young woman from Bellevue, Washington who brought him to Christ in November of 2001. Since then his life has changed in so many ways. In November of 2003 Phil was married, and today he lives in Bellevue, Washington with his wife Jamael and their eleven year old son James and nine year old son Tristan and their eight year old daughter Patricia.
Phil currently attends New Hope International Church in Bellevue, Washington and also runs Bellevue Bible Study at his home on Wednesday evenings that is open to anyone who wishes to attend. Phil loves to reach out overseas with his music and has preached the word in places like Palestine, India, and Pakistan. While Phil still loves to spread the word to the 10-40 corridor, In January of 2015, Phil officially quit perusing his music career to start Seattle Revival, which is a small grass roots ministry that reaches out to the lost of Seattle and Bellevue and meets once a week on Thursday’s at New Hope International Church at 7:30 PM.
The video of Phil performing on the streets of Pakistan has over two million downloads. Phil just completed “New Believer” in the summer of 2013 which is a ballad of songs he specifically wrote for overseas listeners about the trials and tribulations of being a son of light in the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Christian CD is available at Christian Life-way nationwide, but free of charge here.
This is the only video we shot from my Christian album.
