Feb. 16, 2017 — NYC art-punk Phoebe Nir has announced the release of her new EP, Red Tape Nation, via True Groove Records. In support of the announcement, Nir has shared the title track at Verbicide who called it, “An onslaught of fuzzy guitar riffs, off-kilter vocals, anti-authoritarian morals, and riot grrl attitude that feels all too relevant with Donald Trump’s recent inauguration.”
Phoebe Nir graduated from Brown University in 2014 with a degree in Writing for Performance. She has been received at the White House by Barack Obama as a Presidential Scholar of the Arts in Writing, and was nominated for the prestigious Pushcart Prize for Literary Fiction. Her work in musical theatre has been showcased in New York City at Joe’s Pub, Feinstein’s 54 Below, and the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop.
She is currently developing an original musical theater adventure trilogy, “Diana & Navy & The Golden Tooth”, with composer Tomás Doncker, and recently released her debut pop EP, “Side Hustle” via True Groove Records. Her follow up EP, Red Tape Nation, is currently in the works and will be followed by a tour to SXSW.
Phoebe is a proud member-at-large of the Bread and Puppet Theater, a hardcore Gilbert and Sullivan nerd, and a certified yoga instructor.
