Manchester-based singer-songwriter, Phoebe Green embarks on her first ever headline tour this June and is set to perform an intimate gig at Liverpool Central Library, in collaboration with Get It Loud In Libraries.
Born and bred in the small seaside town of Lytham St Annes, Phoebe Green started writing songs at the age of 12 and, at aged 17 she released 02:00AM, a 10-song mini-album written in the grips of insomnia using only her phone’s notes app and recorded entirely herself in her bedroom. The album, conveying Green’s teen angst in intimate detail, was a stunning debut and carries a ‘unique individuality and style of its own’ (Even The Stars). Released without a record label, the independent, DIY album has become a viral phenomenon, accumulating over three million streams.
The self-released album attracted the attention of Will Street from boutique label, Chess Club, that has now released Green’s first official single, Dreaming Of, transitioning Green from bedroom artists to fully fledged studio musician. Documenting her caged-up anxieties and longing to be her true, authentic self, Dreaming Of has been named a ‘different kind of girl power anthem’ (Refinery 29). The track, produced by Mercury Prize nominees, Everything Everything’s Alex Robertshaw, has been described as a ‘dreamy slice of indie-pop’ featuring ‘ethereal synths and lulling vocal line’ (Gig Goer) and was named The Line of Best Fit’s song of the day when released in March 2019. The single has received wide acclaim and earned Green Gig Goer’s title of artist of the week in April 2019.
Since the single’s release, Green has been on tour supporting Sundara Karma on their 2019 UK tour and experienced her biggest audiences to date. Before the tour, Green played small venues to less than 100 people and, whilst supporting Sundara Karma, has played for thousands of new fans. Green’s upcoming library tour, in collaboration with Get It Loud In Libraries, is Green’s first headline tour and a chance to play new material set to be released later in the year to audiences in Liverpool, Coventry and Huddersfield.
Audiences across England, Scotland and Wales are discovering the potential of libraries as unique, intimate music venues that give people of all ages the rare chance to get up close and personal with upcoming artists, thanks to Get It Loud In Libraries. In fact, the programme boasts a long list of performances from, at the time, unknown artists who then went on to have incredible careers, including Adele, Florence + The Machine and The Vaccines. Get It Loud In Libraries provides music provision to areas often missed on major tours and exists to ‘make libraries meaningful, useful and enjoyable for young people who hadn’t visited in years, if at all’ (Stewart Parsons, The Skinny). Phoebe Green’s upcoming gig at Liverpool Central Library is a great opportunity to see this rising artist in a unique, intimate venue that’s right on your doorstep.
To keep the event cost neutral this event is ticketed at £6.
