About Philipp:

Raised by an American-Slovenian mother and absentee Austrian father, Philipp uses his unorthodox cultural background and family structure to pose as an external observer and cultivate an offbeat socio-political perspective.

Philipp’s has been featured on the BBC and he has also supported Russell Kane on tour.
