CRITIC’S PICK: Phillips’ 90s-era work with Grant Lee Buffalo, let alone Shiva Burlesque, his band previous to that, is so far in the rearview mirror that most fans probably don’t even know about them. Rather Phillips has a thick, dozen album solo catalog featuring dusky, often wistful (his newest is titled All That You Can Dream) indie folk-pop sung with a smoke-tinged vulnerability that has attracted its own Americana audience. He’s the epitome of an indie troubadour, unspooling emotional songs with class and subtlety. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

“One of the most gifted songwriters of his generation ...”—ABC News

“Criminally underappreciated, Grant-Lee Phillips is one of the more versatile singers around.”—Mother Jones

In the early months of 2020, when Grant-Lee Phillips realized potential touring options would be on hold for the foreseeable future, he began to write and record a new solo album at home. “It became a sort of meditation on this time in my life and the events that we’ve collectively experienced.” The reflective All That You Can Dream marks his 10th solo album. Audiences first discovered Phillips’ thoughtful, literate songwriting in context of the rock band Grant Lee Buffalo, a trio which found success with the 1993 debut Fuzzy. The title track catapulted the group to international recognition. Grant Lee Buffalo followed up Fuzzy with 1994’s Mighty Joe Moon (an album featuring the modern rock hit “Mockingbirds”) and two more well-received full-lengths, 1996’s Copperopolis and 1998’s Jubilee. Beginning with his 2000 solo debut Ladies’ Love Oracle, Phillips opened another chapter in his career, as a folk- and Americana-focused artist crafting songs and stories rich with details and humanity. He returned to the road in the spring of 2022. Eager fans throughout the U.S. and overseas would come to experience two new Grant-Lee Phillips albums – Lightning, Show Us Your Stuff, released in 2020, and All That You Can Dream from 2022.
