Phoebe Bridgers has been called a “musical unicorn” by Ryan Adams. I don’t know about you guys, but I haven’t heard many musicians be called a musical unicorn, so she must be pretty dang cool. If that title alone tells you how awesome Phoebe Bridgers is, then congrats! If you need more convincing, please read on.
The Los Angeles native released an EP called Killer in 2015 which features three melancholy-sounding songs. The song “Georgia” is one of my favorites because Phoebe shows off her amazing vocal power in this song. After listening to the studio track, watch this video with headphones in and the volume up, you won’t regret it!
She’s been hard at work touring with the likes of Ryan Adams, Conor Oberst and Julien Baker– all while making her first full-length album (you go girl!). Recently, she released the song “Smoke Signals”, which is a love song about how a lot of cool people died last year (R.I.P Bowie <3)
If you’re a fan of Julien Baker or folky indie music in general, then you absolutely need to have Phoebe Bridgers on your musical radar. Not only does she hold the title of ~~Musical Unicorn~~, but Ryan Adams has also compared her to Bob Dylan. You don’t want to miss out on hearing her music.
