I'm drawing on the urgency of the moment, reflects Grant-Lee Phillips. The things that eat away in the late hours
That urgency inspired the headlong rush of Widdershins available February 23 via Yep Roc in which Grant-Lee Phillips invests the insight, nuance, and wit that has distinguished his songcraft over the past three decades in a riveting dissection of today's fraught social landscape. Beneath the moment's tumultuous veneer, Phillips uncovers resonances spanning centuries patterns echoing from the present day to the distant past. Its twelve tracks were cut largely live in the studio with the sharp trio of Phillips (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Jerry Roe (drums), and Lex Price (bass) serving as messengers. Says Phillips, This moment is explosive, volatile, and heightened. It's important to me that the music reflect that...
By turns sardonic, provocative, and illuminating, Widdershins (produced by Phillips and mixed by Tucker Martine) delivers its poetic truths through Phillips's peerless melodic sensibilities, carefully balancing intensity and vulnerability. A now seasoned songwriter and performer, with more than two decades' experience first as frontman of the acclaimed Grant Lee Buffalo then as an accomplished solo artist, Phillips awakens comfort and hope by shining light into darker corners. I hope to express my faith in people, my faith in the good ideas we're capable of, and that regardless of what opposition we face, the fact that we can surmount these things, he concludes. We can stare them down, laugh at them, belittle them, and drive the darkness back into a hole.

Another great, though somewhat short, set from Mr Phillips. One of the great singer-songwriters of our time.

Brick 15
January 3rd 2017
Grant Lee Phillips played Del Mar for the first time last night, and hopefully it won't be his last. The venue, Brick 15 is a Coffeehouse/Performance space with exceptional sound, set in an intimate setting. Grant was as personable, funny, and witty as ever. His performance primarily consisted of songs from his latest CD, "The Narrows." He also performed a number of songs from his former band's classic Grant Lee Buffalo disc, "Mighty Joe Moon."
