Phoebe Bridgers

Data updated on 2024-05-22 08:18:12 UTC
A Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter with a dreamy and hook-filled indie pop heart, Phoebe Bridgers' witty lyrical perspectives, sadly beautiful songs, and commanding melodies have connected with millions of fans worldwide. Bridgers emerged out of nowhere in 2015, and in the space of just a few years her songs drew significant praise and attention, with a solid debut giving way to darker tones on 2020's Grammy-nominated Punisher. In addition to her solo work, Bridgers has collaborated with other artists to equal and sometimes greater acclaim. In addition to work with Taylor Swift, SZA, Muna, and others, she teamed with Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst under the name Better Oblivion Community Center, and famously joined forces with likeminded songwriters Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker to form Boygenius, a supergroup who enjoyed chart success and across-the-board critical praise for their Grammy-winning 2023 full-length debut The Record.

Bridgers was born in 1994 in Pasadena, California. She began playing guitar and writing songs at age 11, and by the time she was a teenager, she frequently played around L.A. while attending Los Angeles County High School for the Arts by day. Bridgers released her debut 7", "Killer," in 2015 on Ryan Adams' Pax AM label. A trio of buzzworthy singles -- "Smoke Signals," "Funeral," and "Motion Sickness" -- appeared in early 2017 in anticipation of the release of her Dead Oceans-issued debut LP, Stranger in the Alps, which arrived later that September. In 2018, Bridgers garnered even more widespread acclaim with the release of the Boygenius EP, a collaborative effort with fellow indie songwriters Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus. At this point, Bridgers was a critical darling, with her albums receiving rave reviews across the board. Song placements in movies and television, multiple appearances on NPR's popular Tiny Desk series, and one-off collaborations with big-name indie stars were all in the works. In January of 2019, Bridgers and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst surprise-released a self-titled album from their new co-led band Better Oblivion Community Center. Oberst and Bridgers had already sung together on a track from Stranger in the Alps, but the new project further explored their collaborative chemistry. The band made several television appearances and toured the U.S. and Europe shortly after the album's release.

In 2020, Bridgers revealed that her second solo album, Punisher, was complete and would arrive later in the year. In advance of the album's release, she began sharing new songs, starting with the drifty folk of "Garden Song" and following it weeks later with "Kyoto." Punisher was released in June of 2020, again on Dead Oceans. A major critical success, it was also a commercial breakthrough for Bridgers, charting throughout North America and Europe and garnering four Grammy Award nominations including Best New Artist. A companion piece to Punisher was released a few months later in the form of Copycat Killer. This EP reworked four songs from the album with string arrangements from conductor/producer Rob Moose. Before 2020 was through, Bridgers released yet another EP, the holiday-themed If We Make It Through December. This four-song EP included various traditional and otherwise Christmas- and holiday-oriented songs and included contributions from Fiona Apple and the National's Matt Berninger.

Over the next year, Bridgers kept up her profile with a series of cover songs. She contributed a version of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" to The Metallica Blacklist tribute album and covered "That Funny Feeling" from Bo Burnham's hit comedy special Inside. She also took on Tom Waits' "Day After Tomorrow" before offering up a new original in 2022's "Sidelines" from the Hulu television series Conversations with Friends. Additional one-off singles followed including a cover of the Carpenters' "Goodbye to Love" from the Minions: The Rise of Gru soundtrack and a collaboration with Andrew Bird on a version of the Handsome Family's "So Much Wine." In March of 2023, Bridgers, along with Boygenius, released their first full-length studio album, aptly titled The Record. The Record climbed to the number four position on the Billboard 200 charts, and the band performed huge, sold-out shows in support of it. In October of that year, Boygenius followed up with EP The Rest, which included a smattering of songs left over from the sessions that produced The Record. Nominated for seven Grammy Awards, The Record ultimately took home the awards for Best Alternative Music Album, along with Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for the track "Not Strong Enough." ~ James Christopher Monger
