His critically acclaimed albums, fusing mellow folk-rock ballads with psychopathic lyrics have earned him mention in Billboard magazine’s ’Critic’s Choice’, as well as acclaim from such notable artists as Moby, who refers to Phillips' songs as "disconcertingly funny".

Henry is a favorite on the nationally syndicated "The Bob & Tom Show.
Dave Ross is a stand-up comic and a staple of the Los Angeles comedy scene. He recently headlined both the Hollywood Improv and the Nerdist Theater at Meltdown, and continues to cart his weird blend of intense vulnerability, screaming political commentary and dumb butt jokes around the city and the country, to every festival, club, theater, bar, fire hall and bombed-out stone building that will have him. Once, in Oregon, he performed for four year-olds.
Some things you might know him from: he is the host of the podcast Terrified on the Nerdist Network, a MOTH Grand Slam winner, a storyteller on KCRW's UnFictional, and was recently interviewed on WTF with Marc Maron. You might have seen him on Tosh.0 with his sketch group, WOMEN, which was named the #1 Comedy Act to Watch in 2014 by the LA Weekly and is now making sketches for IFC's Comedy Crib. In 2014, Dave got hammered on Drunk History on Comedy Central, and in a blackout, demanded that everyone in the world be nice to each other. That's pretty much Dave in a nutshell. He loves you. He loves you kind of angrily.
