Phoebe Sinclair is the master of the 'sanger', the sad-banger. Hypnotic and addictive; her songwriting is deceivingly good, filled with soaring highs and crashing lows. Her live performances transcend listeners, leaving hearts in throats and melodies in minds.
Originally from northern England, the now Brisbane based singer is making an impact with her combination of soulful vocals, swimming electronic production and intoxicating beats. Influenced by kick-ass women in music; Sigrid, Wafia and Ellie Goulding, she is supported by an all-girl band.
Having received national community radio play and critical acclaim from tastemakers Music Is My Muse, Scenester and AAA Backstage, the emotional wreck turned songstress has collaborated across the globe.
Since 2017 she has collaborated with artists in the US, Canada, Sweden, France, Lebanon and at home in Australia. Sinclair’s skills stretch beyond making her own music as she makes up one half of the songwriting duo ‘Middleman’ alongside Lara Frew. Together Sinclair and Frew have co-written with Toronto native Chromak on his single ‘Keep ‘Em Keen’ and with Swedish newcomer Fred Chase on his debut track ‘Real Issues’. The pair recently worked with New Zealand artist VYTLS on his track ‘Memories’ which reached no. 5 on the NZ heatseeker charts & no. 17 on the NZ iTunes pop charts. Sinclair has also lent her writing chops to Nashville artists Kellr and Christine Parri, co-writing singles for both of their debut albums.
Her own recent DIY release ‘Unfair’ garnered 30,000 streams in two months and was picked up by a collection of high profile playlists on Spotify. Within its first week the track was added to Triple J Unearthed rotation and played on Triple J’s ‘Home and Hosed’.
With a list of achievements behind her, such as; being a finalist in the 2017 Gold Coast Music Awards, performing at Bigsound 2018’s Gold Coast showcase, performing on Balcony TV, and playing a string of festivals including Brisbane Festival, *Bleach Festival and Horizon Festival, Sinclair is an act worth watching out for.
Phoebe Sinclair has a highly anticipated new release scheduled for the near future.
