“History and legend have often found their way into my songs” reflects Grant-Lee Phillips. A registered member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, Grant-Lee Phillips elliptically explores the intersection of past and present, personal and political. While his songs delve deeply into the subconscious mystery of his own backstory, they simultaneously reveal the resonance and insight of ancient myth in parallel to contemporary man’s emotions, actions, and errors. Grant-Lee comes to Michigan with the pandemic-recorded album “Come On Lightning, Show Us Your Stuff,” whose title was inspired by the words of his young daughter during a night thunderstorm. In this album the singer-songwriter addresses the fragility of life; addressing such a deep topic with a sense of intensity and humor. Lee Zimmerman of American Songwriter writes: “It is, in short, an album for the ages, and a record that’s representative of Phillips in all his prolific prowess.”
