Liz Phair performing in 2019.

Elizabeth Clark Phair (1967-04-17) is an American singer-songwriter best known for her brutally honest songs about sex and relationships. Her earliest music from 1990 is often described as lo-fi because it has so little production, but she slowly drifted toward pop rock in the early 2000s. However, by the end of the 2000s, she left her publisher and returned to lower-production music.


I didn't hear Liz Phair's music until after she became more popular with her self-titled album Liz Pahir blew up in 2003. While many of her earlier fans accused her of selling out, and I can understand why considering the huge shift toward pop, I never had any expectations of her. I'm sure I wasn't much impressed by her music when the album first came out, but, around that time, I started forcing myself to expand my musical taste, so I'm sure I listened to a fair amount of her music before finally buying her self-titled album in 2007. I like a handful of songs from Liz's earlier albums, but I mostly like her pop rock music, but it has such a low production value and is so technically limited, I can't get into it very much. I do love how blunt Liz is with her lyrics and themes, and I also find her very sexy, especially her upper lip.
