“[River Through the Sun’s] ten, mostly acoustic tracks are a sometimes extraordinary testament to a pretty ordinary life…a spare intimate portrait of a middle-aged man coming to terms with all that’s good, bad and indifferent about being human.”
- Houston Press

“[Rodriguez] comes from the minimalist school of singer/songwriters…drawing on personal experience and the raw edge of failed expectations to create an empathetic vibe with listeners.”

“Intelligent words and lots of heart...”
- Country Eastern West, Columbus, Texas

“…his tales of blue-collar suburbia and Houston’s eastside refineries offer hints at a long-suppressed potential."
- Inside Houston

“…the Houston-born singer-songwriter is refreshingly honest, grounded and passionate about his music…his candid heartfelt music reflects his humble, no-nonsense upbringing in industrial southeast Houston.”
- Houston City News


Philip Rodriguez writes and performs in a minimalist, old-school, retro-folk music style reminiscent of his three major influences: Leonard Cohen, Nick Drake & Townes van Zandt.

The younger brother of expatriate singer/songwriter, David Rodriguez and the uncle of "Americana Sweetheart," Carrie Rodriguez, Philip''s very personal approach to songwriting is derived from his experience of working in the oil refineries and living in the blue-collar suburbia of southeast Houston, Texas.

His parallel music career actually began while still a teenager performing in the late 1970s at Houston’s renowned singer/songwriter venue, the Old Quarter. What appeared to be a promising career was postponed due to a marriage, then a family and fifteen years in the petro-chemical business.

In 1994, after a failed marriage and a corporate lay-off, Philip decided to pick up where he left off fifteen years prior, and pursue what he felt compelled to do...the second time around.

RIVER THROUGH THE SUN reflects the body of work written in the 1990s and recorded in 1998 during a time when Rodriguez decided to pick up his guitar again, after a long hiatus and bring his music back to the forefront of his life. Philip Rodriguez currently resides and performs in the San Jose, California area.
