Proud Strawberry Squad Artist
Philip Ward aka DBLCRWN ('double crown') grew up in Charleston, SC as a self taught multi-instrumentalist, songwriting with bands & musicians since a teenager. His style of original music & live dj'ing reflect influences ranging from jazz to dubstep + foundations built on live musicianship & recording arts.
After dropping out of college he worked in food & bev where he met Clark (Clark on the Sax who's with Strawberry Squad). Clark introduced him to influential music & DJ's in the Strawberry Squad. This inspired Philip to officially hit the ground running mid-2016 as a dj/producer under the name 'Double Crown'. Since then he's DJ'd at Hulaween '17, Pass the Good '16 & Zen Awakening '16 helping support Bassnectar, Griz, & RL Grime to name a few of many.
In early 2017 he joined the Strawberry Squad, a fresh collective of dj's, producers and musicians based in downtown Charleston, SC. Thanks to the Squad, he now has a place in the Charleston nightlife as an active DJ. Now he's often found in his home studio producing beats, collaborating & recording vocalists in between dj'ing and freelance work.
