The Cornell Concert Commission announced Jan. 18 that its latest virtual concert will star singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Bridgers will be joined by fellow singer-songwriter Andrew Belle.
The free event, which will also consist of an additional Q&A with Bridgers, will be available to all Cornell students and accessible through the events page on Campus Groups.
“Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers had something of a breakout 2020, topping critics’ year-end lists, accumulating hundreds of millions of streams and receiving four Grammy nominations,” the CCC wrote in a press release. “Her dreamy indie folk and deeply personal lyrics, though, have been capturing fans’ hearts for years.”
Students will recognize her popular singles such as “Smoke Signals,” “Funeral” and “Motion Sickness” from her debut album, Stranger in the Alps. Her most recent album, 2020’s Punisher, received widespread critical acclaim. She is also known for forming the indie rock duo Better Oblivion Community Center with Conor Oberst, as well as her work with the group Boygenius, which features musicians Julien Baker and Lucy Dacus. Bridgers will be performing as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live’s Feb. 6 show.
Singer Andrew Belle released his debut album The Ladder in 2010 and has since released Black Bear and Dive Deep, two albums “filled with soaring choruses and moody arrangements,” the CCC wrote. Although currently living in Chicago, Belle has also resided in Los Angeles and Nashville and is a member of the critically acclaimed Nashville-based songwriter collective, Ten out of Tenn.
