t began last spring when Phosphorescent’s heartfelt tribute album To Willie (Dead Oceans) received accolades from critics and fans alike. One such fan was the venerable Willie Nelson himself, and soon the band was invited to meet its hero and later perform on his Sirius/XM radio show for his memorable 76th birthday celebration. Phosphorescent is now honored to unite with Mr. Nelson one more time at the legendary Farm Aid in October, alongside luminaries Neil Young, Dave Matthews, John Mellencamp and more.
And now for the next chapter. After spending months in the studio, Phosphorescent is ready to showcase songs new and old with fans this fall, beginning with a special hometown show in Brooklyn. All dates are below, and in the meantime, catch video of Phosphorescent performing gorgeous stripped-down renditions of “The Last Thing I Needed (First Thing This Morning)” and “At Death, A Proclamation” from the KEXP studios in New York HERE.
