On the Way to SxSW: Phebe Starr

Fair Folks is so pleased to announce the first in a series of upcoming mini-concerts, with Phebe Starr, at our Greenwich Village location, 96 West Houston Street. Space is limited, so please RSVP to attend!

Phebe Starr is the latest Electro/Pop artist to come from Australia. With comparisons to Lykki Li, Florence + the Machine, and fellow Aussie Sia, Phebe's unique style of music has begun to make waves in the music scene. Starr got her start from Australian taste-maker radio station Triple J. Her debut single ‘Alone With You’ (listen to it here) hit national air waves and traveled through cyberspace, appearing on blogs for Neon Gold, Interview Magazine, Perez Hilton, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. The 5-track E.P. Zero has been placed in various films, TV shows, and even a Samsung commercial. Over the last 12 months Phebe has been honing her craft and created a series of music that she is ready to release to the world. Chronicles features 5 strong, theatrical new tracks that will blow you away.

In the past couple of years, Phebe has created quite a stir in Australia, getting *significant* play and support from Triple J, opening slots with Of Monsters and Men, Jagwar Ma, The Ruben’s and Paperkites etc. and toured extensively. 

Phebe will be at SXSW playing at the Reverb Connect Showcase on March 18 at Cheer Up Charlies and at TOMS showcase on March 19.

 

“A young lass named Phebe Starr may well have the pop anthem of the year on her hands with Alone With You. This is a monster of a ballad, thumping through your speakers with crystal-clear kick drum marches and a swelling arrangement that outclasses many of Starr's soon-to-be-peers such as Lykke Li, Florence Welch and Sia”. – Dave Ruby Howe (Triple J)

 “Her hypnotizing voice sings about becoming lost in dreams, along with a synth-pop backing track.” – Interview Magazine

“Phebe Starr is the latest pop starlet from down under to make our collective heart skip a beat. You're about to seriously fall head over heels for Phebe Starr, but it's ok, we're all in this together.” – Neon Gold

"Phebe Starr is serving it!!! This Australian is channeling some old school Kate Bush meets new school Marina & The Diamonds! A fave and another fave! AND, in addition to great music, Phebe Starr is also serving us some great and interesting visuals too!" - Perez Hilton
