Barney & Friends[]

While working across the street from Universal Studios Florida, a producer friend of Phillips asked him about doing the music for the then upcoming Barney attraction at Universal Studios Florida.

After doing the music for the attraction, Phillips was approached by Sloan Coleman to do the music for the tour of Barney's Big Surprise. Phillips (and his crew) mixed and edited the show while it was being rehearsed at the same time. After opening night of the tour, the producers approached him to do the music for Barney & Friends. Phillips was the music director of the show from season four until season fourteen.
