About the Creator and Performer

Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter. Guitar-playing virtuoso. Feminist trailblazer. Author. Game-changer. Disrupter. Visual artist. Icon. That is a lot of words for one person, but Liz Phair has earned them. It all started back in the early ‘90s with deeply clever and often brutally candid songs laid down on a cassette player in her bedroom. Those songs became Exile in Guyville, an album that now resides on Rolling Stone’s "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list. Not a bad start.
As if to confirm her genius, Phair proved creatively restless, confounding expectations by creating pop-leaning masterpieces like "Why Can’t I," only to pivot again towards hip-hop with 2010’s Funstyle. If Phair’s career has had a governing philosophy, we might take it as this: Hold to the center, swing around. With her new album, Soberish—her first collection of new, original music in a decade—Phair remains playful, inquisitive, uncompromising, but anchored. The center can still hold.

Came back for three months for Liz.

Even with the book, the interviews, the live streams and an outstanding new joint with Brad Wood—Soberish—this Audible piece gave me WAY more personal insight into my #1 favorite artist than I’ve heard ever before.

When she plays The Game your senses will explode. Promise.

Nobody beats Liz Phair

Like having a conversation with Liz Phair, and having her play you some songs. If you like her music you’ll enjoy this, if you like this you’ll love her audiobook Horror Stories.

Liz is great. This should be a real interview.

love the performances and Liz Phair says some great things about her rise to fame and being an artist and everything you'd expect here. it reminds me a lot of the old iTunes Originals series. But it's really poorly edited if it's supposed to sound like Liz just talking about the music. there's obvious pausing for questions and topic changes, and if they're obvious, you may as well bring in someone interesting to interview as well.

Great quality audio + great quality thoughts

So glad this came out! A good variety of songs from throughout her career (wish something from Funstyle was performed), but overall this was a fun listening experience!

I wanted to like this more than I did

I'm a huge fan of her first 2 albums, less so of what followed. Fittingly, the beginning of Never Said Nothing was great and about 1/2 through it fizzles and never really recovers. She seems lovely and likable. I wish this production were better than this.

If you like Liz Phair...

... you'll enjoy this. Nothing mind-blowing, but engaging. The performances make up for the bloviating.

Inside her head

Fascinating look into the life of a self described middle aged woman as she reflects on what made her who she is today. Never expecting to be a rock star, Phair ponders her successes and her failures, motherhood and the growing up years that are central to her music. Listen carefully! Much joy. Much to come.

Great fun reflecting on Liz Phair and her impact

I'm the same generation as Liz and love her music. It was fun to hear from her again and understand her life a little better.

Liz Phair is a superstar!

I have loved her music ever since I read about Exile in Guyville in Rolling stone magazine in the early 90s. I went out and bought the album that day and pretty much wore the grooves out of it. I remember when white chocolate space egg came out, it was the first music I bought on CD. I feel like we’ve grown up together. After listening to this audiobook, I have so much more respect for her and her music and how she crafts songs.
