Play now

Liz Phair helped lay the foundation for a generation of fierce, independent artists on her gritty 1993 debut album, Exile In Guyville. Early in her career, she pushed for freedom and creative control, especially for female artists. It’s something she’s finally seeing become the norm in the industry. That progress inspired her new record, Soberish where she reunites with the producer of her first two albums: Brad Wood.

On today’s episode Bruce Headlam talks to Liz Phair about how her approach to recording music isn’t a technical one — she relies on the unique way she hears music and her background as a visual artist. She also talks about how her first ever creative aspiration was to write a classic Christmas carol.
