Liz Phair Introduction

Liz Phair is the indie musician who turned pop. With a body like that, who can blame her for selling out?

Liz Phair Life Story

Liz Phair isn't just a poor man's version of Sheryl Crow. Phair first shopped her music around, calling herself Girly Sound. In 1992, she signed with indie label Matador Records and thankfully dropped the Girl Sound name. With a $3,000 advance, Phair set out to make the album Exile in Guyville, which would become a staple of the indie-music scene.

The album not only had great music, but explicit, raunchy lyrics too. Among the stand-out tracks are "Flower", which is about a girl throwing herself at a guy and wishing to be his "blowjob queen". For best results: Pop it in the next time you're on a road trip with Grandma.

Critics and audiences alike loved the album. Rolling Stone named it one of the 500 best albums of all time. So naturally, all eyes were on Phair's follow-up record, called Whip-Smart. She was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone, and videos from the album where shown on MTV. The former indie princess was getting a lot of media attention, and some say it may have distracted her from the work at hand. Whip-Smart received mixed reviews.

Phair continued to appeal to the mass audiences and shocked her loyal fans when she signed with Capital Records in 2003 and released the very poppy self-titled album. While the song "Why Can't I" was shown on MTV and the once angry Phair seemed to be happy and less edgy. She also sang back-up vocals on the Sheryl Crow hit Soak up the Sun in 2002.

While continuing her solo career, Phair recently married and had a child. Who would have thought the former indie bad-girl would become soccer mom.
