Born and raised in the Northern Rivers dairy farming community of Coorabell, Thor has country in his blood.
He first picked up a guitar at age 4 and this was to be the beginning for a life long relationship with music.
“I love being in the country, from the green pastures of the Northern Rivers to the brown paddocks of the Riverina, to the Snowy Mountains high country in Victory and NSW to the warm July breeze inland off Cape York its all beautiful, Its open and gives me a feeling I cant explain, but I try to write about it in my songs, to share that feeling with my audience” -Thor Phillips
