CARDINAL SESSIONS PRESENTS

ARTISTS TO WATCH, pt 1

 

  • PHOEBE BRIDGERS

 

“Part of me wants you

But most of me needs you

So I won’t fall unless you ask me to”

 

Phoebe Bridgers is an artist from Los Angeles who really stands out for us when it comes to singer-songwriters. Every word she sings feels very real and raw and, positively, a little out-of-time. She recorded with Ryan Adams, toured with Julien Baker and Conor Oberst, but what’s most important: She’s gonna release a record really soon. Our favourite song might be “Steamroller”, a sad tune about love that strikes just the right tone. Bridgers stated in an interview that “Either/Or” by Elliott Smith is her favourite record of all time, and if you listen to most of her songs, you get the idea and you can hear the influence.

Watch a performance of “Steamroller” below.
