Phoebe Legere

Phoebe Legere is an Americana poet who whose voice “moves easily from winsome sweetness to a sultry blues growl.” She has been called "one of the greatest living American roots piano players." Her low-down rock’n’ roll blues guitar playing has fans on their feet. Phoebe's rockin' Cajun accordion stylings won her a first runner-up trophy in the "Search for America's Hottest Accordion Player." but beyond all the monster musicianship and chops that bring critics to their knees Phoebe Legere is a wordsmith with a vision.

Phoebe Legere’s hit songs Marilyn Monroe (Island Records), “Amazing Love” (Random Records), and her new hit “Wrong Honky Tonk” (Optimistic Kitty) have been heard on radio from coast to coast. She is currently #28 on the alt. Roots chart.

The New York Times raved: “Phoebe Legere is magnificent!” Phoebe Legere’s fearlessness, and funk are “spellbinding.” “Legere’snon-stop musicianship” combined with her “beautiful voice that takes your breath away” (NPR) have earned her 11 million devoted fans on Youtube.

Phoebe has performed thousands of shows, from Country Fairs to NPR, from Folk Festivals to the Pow Wow circuit, from Songwriter Circles to a CBS Sunday Morning feature.

Phoebe Legere brings avantgarde experimentation together with bluegrass; she brings performance and high art to a rural jamboree, she is the original singing cowgirl, and her gender forward approach allows her to remain always the perfectly groomed glamorous lady even while she is burning down the house with her powerhouse vocals, intelligent lyrics and highly imaginative, adventurous licks.
