Forever Billy Joel follows on from the success of Phil Mountford’s original tribute band, Forever Elton. This new show is a tribute to his favourite American singer/songwriter piano playing legend, Billy Joel.

Working as Forever Elton, Phil has performed throughout the UK in many theatres and venues as well as in Europe with his band, entertaining audiences with his take on the dynamic Sir Elton John.

Phil Mountford has had much success in his own right and continues to pursue his career as a musician and performer. As an award winning composer, having scored the soundtracks to many films which continue to be streamed worldwide, such as Vendetta (Danny Dyer) and Journey To Le Mans (Patrick Stewart), he also regularly composes music for TV, adverts and theatre, with a full list of his movie credits found on IMDB.

Having studied composition privately, he also enjoys his position as Musical Director of Fordante, a contemporary classical quintet, that performs popular classical repertoire, film music alongside his own works having been supported multiple times by Arts Council England.
