Classically-trained singer-songwriter Phia makes music that is abound with luscious layers of harmonies, rambunctious vocal percussion and vivid pop sensibilities.
Recorded in Berlin at the famous Funkhaus studios and mixed in New York, U.S by Eli Crews (Tune-Yards, Deerhoof, Dear Reader), her debut album ‘The Ocean of Everything’ is one of breathtaking beauty and joy, capturing Phia’s fascination and curiousity in the world around her and inside of her, with the pure sound of her African kalimba enhanced by electric guitar lines, deep synth bass and beats.
Phia grew up in Melbourne Australia where she started off working as a session pianist for various projects. In 2011 she bought a one-way ticket to Berlin.
This leap into the unknown led Phia and her songs around the world, where she honed her truly remarkable live show across hundreds of performances – from bars in Southern Italy, to fisherman’s villages in Iceland and major music festivals in Germany.
