Phoebe Blume's listeners are cradled through intimate journeys within each song. Her rich, deep arrangements are crafted with the utmost care, designed to draw in the listener. At times honest and cutting, while also tender and romantic, Blume's lyrics tell timeless, emotional stories through sophisticated and ironic means. Phoebe's time spent in the deep south reflect in some of her Americana melodies, while her years of classical training are encapsulated in rich, string-enhanced music-beds and melodies. All genres blend with rock and folk to create an unique listening experience.
In February 2014, Blume released her third album, Congregation of One. Aptly named, this collection of ten tunes was composed, arranged, performed and recorded by Blume alone. Velvet Thunder Sound Systems mixed the tracks, utilizing their many years of experience in both live and studio engineering, to layer the tracks masterfully. The true mastering of the entire album was performed at Gung Ho Studio. The entire project took four months of late nights in Blume's home studio, and the result is a clean and beautifully-produced collection of contemporary original music.
Regarding her two previous albums, The Homing Beasts (2009) and Into Your Fold (2011), reviewers had this to say:
"Without a doubt, the most unique record I've heard in 2009. It's a record that get's better every time I listen to it," (Roy Elkins, CEO, Broadjam, Inc.). Phoebe Blume's debut album, The Homing Beasts, (September, 2009) received high acclaim as a transformational piece spanning multiple genres. Said Rex Benson, (Rex Benson Music Group) "the package has amazing variety and humor...not to mention a fair share of angst...It's rare these days to hear such story-telling."
September 2011 marked the release of Blume's second album, "Into Your Fold" and she took her writing to a new level with an excellent new group of performers, a rich vibe, and strong lyrics and delivery. This album was also the first in which she played instruments, both banjo and piano. "With the release of her CD Into Your Fold [Phoebe Blume] proves that love and heartbreak are intertwined." Says Liam Sullivan, author of Making the Scene Nashville (2011) "She is a true artist and one who is in total control of her songwriting craft."
Recently, Phoebe's award-winning music is catching the attention of critics and A&R alike. She has music signed with Rescue Records, SYNCHUP, MTV and Rumblefish, and is featured on three compilation CDs: through Urban Angel Music out of Belfast, Ireland, Deep South Entertainment in Raleigh, NC and Fast Forward Music, in Frankfurt.
