Grant-Lee Phillips

Despite his status as something of a veteran songwriter, Grant Lee Phillips’ poetic, sardonic and perfectly crafted alt-country continues to pack an emotional punch. The former frontman of Grant Lee Buffalo and roving troubadour from The Gilmore Girls lends his “focused, tip-of-the-cap tenor, with just the right amount of gravel” (Pop Matters) to bittersweet melodies that echo with the past and a “distinctive thread of wistfulness” (Rolling Stone).

Support comes from Jarrod Dickenson.

This is a standing show.
