Филипп (Фил) Эверли родился 19 января 1939 года в Чикаго. Участник дуэта - The Everly Brothers с братом Доном Эверли, имевший феноменальный успех в конце 50-х - начале 60-х годов. Дуэт придерживался жанровых традиций кантри и рокабилли, но оказал значительное влияние на будущих звёзд новой сцены: The Beatles (аранжировавших вокал «Please Please Me» по образцу «Cathy’s Clown») и The Rolling Stones. 26 синглов The Everly Brothers входили в Billboard Top 40. В 1986 году они оказались в числе первых десяти исполнителей, введенных в Зал славы рок-н-ролла. Нейл Янг в своей речи отметил, что все коллективы, в которых он когда-либо принимал участие, «…пытались копировать вокальную гармонию братьев Эверли, и каждый раз терпели фиаско». Дуэт распался в 1973 году, после запомнившегося всем инцидента, когда во время концерта в Knotts Berry Farm Фил разбил гитару и ушел со сцены, оставив Дона доигрывать сет. «The Everly Brothers умерли десять лет назад», - такими словами последний распрощался с публикой. Десять лет спустя братья встретились вновь и выпустили студийный альбом, записанный продюсером Дэйвом Эдмундсом. On the Wings of a Nightingale, которую специально для братьев написал Пол Маккартни, вернула дуэт в английские и американские чарты. Последнее их появление там связано с Born Yesterday (1986). Фил Эверли некоторое время был успешным соло-артистом. В 2001 году The Everly Brothers были введены в Country Music Hall of Fame, а еще три года спустя - в Vocal Group Hall of Fame.

Best known as one half of the Everly Brothers, Phil Everly also had a mildly successful solo career. The Everly Brothers (Phil and Don) were one of the most popular and influential rock acts of the 1950s. Songs like "Wake Up Little Susie" and "Take a Message to Mary" showcased the Everly's boyish charm and inspired close harmonies. As the '50s came to an end, the Everlys' star began to fade a little; the hits still came but they were not as big. The music they made was still as just as good, but attention was shifting elsewhere, like to the Beatles, who were no small fans of the Everlys themselves. As the 1960s came to a close, the brothers were exploring their country roots and making great records like Roots, which includes tracks that remain country rock classics. Unfortunately, most music fans didn't care and in the early '70s, the Everlys were stuck doing supper clubs and amusement parks. It was at one such gig in 1973 where years of frustration boiled over and Phil and Don had a monumental breakup and each went solo. 
Phil released his first solo record in 1973. Star Spangled Springer trod upon the same rootsy ground as the Everlys' last records and was a small critical success. Phil Everly released Phil's Diner in 1974 and Mystic Line in 1975 , neither of which were well-received. He tied his hand at acting appearing in Clint Eastwood's Any Which Way but Loose and did some freelance songwriting. In 1983, Don and Phil buried their differences and reunited, playing an emotional show at Royal Albert Hall. Also in 1983, Phil released another solo album, his last, for Capitol. the Everly Brothers stayed together to record three new albums in the mid- to late '80s and have been together ever since, sounding great touring the world and playing state fairs and community colleges. - Tim Sendra
