Liz Phair

Name: Elizabeth Clark Phair
Born: 17th April, 1967 (New Haven, Connecticut, United States)

Profile: She is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. She attended Oberlin College in Oberlin, Ohio, and majored in art history. She even supported herself by selling her charcoal drawings on the streets of Wicker Park.

History: Liz's entry into the music industry began when she met guitarist Chris Brokaw of "Come". Brokaw and Liz moved to San Francisco together, where she tried to become an artist there. After moving back to Chicago, Liz began writing songs and recording homemade tapes under the name "Girly Sound" before signing with the independent record label Matador Records.

Her 1993 debut studio album "Exile in Guyville" was released to acclaim: by the turn of the twenty-first century, it had been ranked by Rolling Stone Magazine as one of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. An album after an album it was always a great success and in 1998, Liz joined the now legendary "Lilith Fair" to promote her album and share the main stage along with the acts like Alanis Morissette, Sarah McLachlan, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow and Missy Elliott.

In 2003, her self-titled fourth album was released on her new label, Capitol Records. She had been working on her record, as well as making guest appearances on other tracks (she lent backing vocals to the Sheryl Crow hit "Soak Up the Sun").

Influences: Unknown

Axology: Fender Mustang guitars
