Recently, Phoebe Bridgers, the crossover artist between folk, pop and indie rock, released the stand-alone single "Sidelines." The track is the theme song for the TV adaptation "Conversations with Friends" based on Sally Rooney's debut novel of the same name, who in turn is one of the singer's favorite writers. The prolific artist has recorded two albums, around ten EPs, several singles and dozens of collabos and vocal contributions with and for The 1975, Paul McCartney, Bright Eyes, The Killers and many other artists* in just a few years. Add to that two LPs with indie supergroup boygenius - along with Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus - and the fantastic album "Better Oblivion Community Center" with kindred spirit Conor Oberst.
From the age of eleven, when she wrote her first song, through her time as a street musician in Los Angeles, her studies as a jazz singer and as a member of Sloppy Jane, to her acclaimed performances on her "Reunion" tour, Bridgers has surrounded herself with music. Writes it, makes it, records it, produces it and lives it. Her powerful yet quiet voice and haunting, introspective songs shine almost on their own in the darkness. The ethereal guitar arrives as if on tiptoe, the gently supporting electronic sounders, the flattering strings and the strikingly restrained arrangements are her trademark, setting the melancholy yet optimistic background for her wonderful lyrics telling these unique stories....
