 Liz phair Biography

Liz Phair, the in-your-face indie sweetheart, sent up "Guyville" (i.e., the male-dominated alternative-music scene dubbed as such by Chicago rockers Urge Overkill) in her debut, Exile in Guyville —a song-by-song response to the Stones' Exile on Main Street. The album drove home the point that gender has nothing to do with whether or not an artist can rock with intelligence and sexual savvy.

Raised in a wealthy suburb of Chicago, Phair studied art at Oberlin College, where she was constantly experimenting with songwriting. A friend, guitarist Chris Brokaw, later of the band Come, prodded Phair to make a tape of her songs, which resulted in her signing to Matador and recording Guyville.

Her followup, Whip-Smart (#27, 1994), revealed itself to be a more introspective album —although her melting pot of punk, folk, and pop doesn't hide her frank, often sexual lyrics.

She took a break from touring in 1995, marrying Jim Staskausas, a Chicago film editor who worked on her videos. She released the Juvenalia EP that summer, which featured material from her homemade "Girlysound" tapes.

During 1996, she began recording a new album with producer Scott Litt, shelved the project, and gave birth to a son. Working with Guyville and Whip-Smart producer Brad Wood, she later returned to the studio, releasing Whitechocolatespaceegg (#35) in 1998.

In Spring 2016 she went on the road with Smashing Pumpkins on their North American “In Plainsong” tour. This was be her first US tour in 6 years. In 2018, it was announced that Matador Records would be releasing a retrospective set for Phair's debut album Exile in Guyville which includes remastered recordings from her original Girly Sound demo tapes.
