He has been praised by critics and audiences alike, garnering favorable reviews from magazines like Blues in Britain, Blues Revue and Down Beat for both his records and live performances. With around 80 concerts per year, Philipp is one of the most successful live musicians in Switzerland. A long-awaited appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2012 was released as a CD/DVD «Plays Montreux Jazz Festival» (2013).
