Today, Liz Phair announced her Atlanta Symphony Hall debut on November 28, 2023.

In the years following Exile In Guyville, Phair has continued to defy expectations and break barriers. She has released five albums, sold over five million records, composed music for television, and received two GRAMMY nominations. In 2019, she published a memoir, Horror Stories (Random House), which the LA Times called “a raw look at fame, motherhood and aging with all the unbridled honesty of the songs that put the singer in the spotlight in the first place.”
On her most recent full-length, Soberish (2021), Phair reunited with Exile in Guyville producer Brad Wood. Variety called the album, “A superior work.” The New Yorker invoked her debut, writing “It often feels just as spontaneous and elemental.”
Today, three decades after the release of her debut, Phair’s influence in contemporary music –and particularly over female voices – resonates more strongly than ever.
