Phil Carmen (born Herbert Hofmann, February 14, 1953 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Swiss musician and producer of Canadian heritage. Carmen grew up in Frankfurt am Main, Germany and in Lucerne, Switzerland. In Lucerne, he went to the Conservatory, but later studied bookkeeping. In 1975, he decided to turn to music. With bassist Mike Thompson (born Marcel Galuzzi), he founded the duo Carmen & Thompson, playing especially country music. The single “Time Moves On” reached #31 on the Italian charts in 1980, and in 1981 they appeared at the San-Remo-Festival performing the song “Follow Me”. After seven years of stage experience Phil Carmen founded the Picar Studios in Stein am Rhein, Switzerland in 1982 and recorded two solo albums which attracted little attention until 1985, when he had a hit with the LP Walkin’ the Dog, which reached #3 in the Swiss charts. The single “On My Way to LA” was his greatest success and climbed in the summer of 1985 to #18 in Germany and #9 in Switzerland. “On My Way to LA” was also used in the television series Wild West in 1988.
