Sam Phillips (with interview at end)

September 17th, 2008

Episode 93 of 426 episodes

Of all of Sam Phillips' roles as a musician — first as a contemporary Christian singer, later as an ornate pop artist — her latest incarnation is the most alluring. Her jangly, mostly acoustic songs rattle and shake with graceful, noirish tales of broken lives. Phillips is currently on tour in support of her latest CD, Don't Do Anything. She showcased the album in a full concert, recorded live at the Rams Head in Annapolis, Md. This concert recording is followed by an interview with the band and All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen.
