Phillip Ingram (born July 11, 1958) was raised in Akron, Ohio. He came from a musical family with six brothers and sisters who all sang and played instruments but only Phillip and his older brother, James Ingram, pursued a musical career.

In December 1976 the band Switch was formed. This consisted of Phillip Ingram, Greg Williams, Jody Sims, Bobby DeBarge, Tommy DeBarge and Eddie Fluellen.

Switch was signed to Motown Records in May/1977 and went on to record five albums for the Label. Their first album went platinum with such hits as "They'll Never Be", "I Wanna Be Closer". Their second album went GOLD, which included "Best Beat In Town" and "I Call Your Name".

Starting in 1984, Phillip went behind the scenes writing for various artists and working with various artists, films and commercials.

Currently (2011) Phillip still sings and records for TV and radio commercials, works on films, radio station IDs, and recordings. In addition, he is working on production of new & upcoming artists along with Rex Salas. He's currently touring with Sheena Easton and a new incarnation of Switch.
