Phoebe Bridgers
Phoebe Bridgers
Don’t let the somber tone of her music fool you: the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers has a sunny disposition. 

“I’d hate for someone to think I’m sipping an espresso somewhere judging people or feeling sorry for myself. OK, I definitely do that once in a while, but I don’t consider myself an intense person.” 

Bridgers grew up in the rose-colored city of Pasadena, attending the prestigious Los Angeles County High School for the Arts to study music. From an early age, she found encouragement from a close-knit artistic community of friends and family to follow her dreams, and at school she forged relationships that would teach her as much about her craft as her classes.

“I think most of my musical education had to do with being around a ton of teenagers who listened to music all the time,” she says. “At school I had classical training for my voice, but I think being surrounded by people who were really enthusiastic about art and going to concerts all the time was the real education.”

“I’ve gotten a lot happier since making my album and have a strong sense of purpose,” she says. “I wasn’t trying to be too lo-fi, too hi-fi, too self-serious, too disingenuous…I feel pretty confident that I’m finding my voice. I wanted the album to completely represent who I am and these songs are representative of what I set out to do.”
Francesca Blanchard
Francesca Blanchard’s music reflects on the transition of a young artist growing into herself. In her new work, Blanchard uses sarcasm, self-deprecation and a frank light-heartedness as buffers to depict what it means to come to terms with one’s self. Re-defined production (along with a self-imparted responsibility to have a little more fun) propel Blanchard in a fresh and unpredictable direction. Her latest singles (“Free” which was featured prominently on Grey’s Anatomy, and "Maria", a love song to a natural disaster whose proceeds were donated to hurricane relief efforts), precede Francesca’s latest body of work. Blanchard’s second album is planned to be released in 2019.
