Description

PHOEBE LEGERE is a transdisciplinary artist. Her all-grrl rock band, Monad opened for David Bowie on his national tour. Her song Marilyn Monroe, from cult film Mondo New York was a hit on college radio. Legere was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Music for her work The Waterclown, performed with the Cleveland Chamber Symphony. In 2014 Phoebe Legere received the prestigious Acker Award for Excellence in the Avant Garde. She is the host and head writer of Roulette TV, a show about the extreme frontier edge of Art and Music. Last week Legere appeared painting, singing and acting in an HBO special produced by Lena Dunham.

On May 16 and 17th Legere will appear singing from the stage her alternative-energy 15-person ride-able sculpture, The Shamancycle at the Bay Area Maker Faire. Visit http://www.phoebelegere.com to learn more.

The New York Times raved: “Legere plays the piano with enormous authority in a style that encompasses Chopin, blues, ragtime, bebop and beyond, and she brings to her vocal delivery a four octave range, and an extraordinary palette of tonal color and meticulous phrasing.”Provincetown Magazine wrote: “Often copied, never equaled, Phoebe Legere is a transmedia virtuoso force who zaps the listener into a new reality. Legere personifies the divine feminine; her multi-octave voice has been compared to Edith Piaf, Aretha Franklin and Maria Callas. Legere is nuclear, spinning, multidimensional create force not to be missed.” Interview Magazine called her “ a genius.”
