ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Phoebe Kreutz is a boozy floozy with a heart of gold. She sings silly songs about the things she likes best: boys and bars and vikings and tacos.

Growing up in New York’s East Village, Phoebe learned a lot about all these things. She also learned a lot about rhyming from Dr. Seuss and the joys of thinly-veiled social commentary from “He-Man” and “The Smurfs”.

Now she’s all grown up and still loving life in the big city. She gets to sing in all kinds of fun places like The Knitting Factory, Fez, Birdland and The Sidewalk Café. It was there that she found the jolly antifolk scene, which has nurtured and indulged her like a benevolent uncle these past few years. It was also there that she met the boys who would later join with her to become the world’s greatest art-indie-rock band that only sings about animals in the city, Urban Barnyard.

When not rocking out on stage, Phoebe works as the puppet wrangler on the hit show, "Avenue Q". While there, she grabbed every musician she could get her hands on and turned them into The Phyllis Newman Health Initiative Dancers - a band that blends uptown excellence with downtown crudeness with lively and sometimes dashing results.

But sometimes Phoebe hears the call of The Road and has to set off on wild adventures. She’s played in fun towns like Seattle, Olympia, Portland, Eugene, San Francisco, San Diego, Austin, Albequerque, Flagstaff and Las Vegas. She’s also brought her message of ridiculousness to college campuses such as Oregon State University and Stanford.

This year, Phoebe is proud to have played twice in the “Voices for Change” benefit series for John Kerry, sharing the stage with fancy folks like Tom Wopat, Cady Huffman, Charles Busch and Christopher Durang. Also, she’s been honored to have her songs sung by “Avenue Q” stars John Tartaglia, Ann Harada and Jen Barnhart at caberets around the city like Ars Nova and Joe’s Pub.

She has been the recipient of many awards including an Emmy for her work on Sesame Street, the coveted Sportsmanship Award for her team's pleasantly incompetent performance in the Broadway Show Softball League and $25 in the "Hot Buns" competition at the Rickshaw Karaoke Bar in Seattle.

stardom beckons
Heard Phoebe on Radio 2 here in Scotland recently and thought I'd try the album. I've been playing it in my car ever since it arrived a week ago and it is great. Smartass lyrics are not everyone's cup of tea and Phoebe is a girl who loves a rhyme but she is more than just a one-trick pony. Apart from the sassy lyrics there's great musicality and songcraft. She can tell a fine story with an economy of words. Real standout songs are Song to Make You Cry (some fine saw playing on that one too) All Summer Long. But there's not a weak song on the album. Couldn't recommend this more highly and would urge you to buy it.

Smart, funny, and flatout fun
Songs like "All Summer Long" and "Oh, Elizabeth I" (the latter is about the British queen) are so catchy, they will have you singing along. While low-key songs like "Disaster" and "Like You Like" might just make you smile, the comic lyrics of "Song To Make You Cry" and "Lesbian Cowgirl" will probably make you laugh out loud. Highly recommended!!
