Life Beyond Exile | Liz Phair

Liz Phair took the music world by storm in the early 90s with the release of her iconic album Exile in Guyville. That, along with her self-produced Girly Sound tapes, landed her on the cover of Rolling Stone and launched a decades-long career in music. Now, a multi-Grammy-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist, and composer, mom and mentor to so many, Phair’s new memoir, Horror Stories, gives a glimpse into so many of the hidden moments that shaped her journey. In today’s conversation, we touch down on these, and also explore how Liz’s lens on life, meaning, music, creativity, quitting, complexity and spirituality has evolved over time.

Liz Phair is on tour right now, so be sure to check out Girly Sound to Guyville: The 25th Anniversary Box Set and maybe even see her at a show near you.
