Iconic troubadour Grant-Lee Phillips has been a pioneering force in alternative rock for more than 25 years. Pushing the limits of folk, alternative, pop and Americana, his band Grant Lee Buffalo were a seminal nineties mainstay, and in addition to this Phillips has enjoyed a prolific solo career.
His latest album was named as one the 35 most anticipated Country albums of 2016 by Rolling Stone. While the album may buck ideas of what country music is and can be, it’s founded on a genuine embrace of America’s musical roots and branches, hinging on Phillips’ proclivity for detailed lyrical story telling and rich musical atmospheres.
It’s a signature that marks the albums of Grant Lee Buffalo, going as far back as 1993’s Fuzzy, which Michael Stipe of R.E.M. endorsed as ‘The best album of the year.’ Grant Lee Buffalo albums like Mighty Joe Moon remain enigmatic treasures that draw in new generations to this day.
