Phoebe Killdeer, producer, songwriter, and singer, stands out with her eclectic artistry and compelling performances. Her live shows are visceral experiences. Known for delving into the dark side of the human condition, her emotive and mesmerising voice and stage presence rivals that of Siouxsie and PJ Harvey.


She initially gained recognition with the French band Nouvelle Vague before pursuing a solo career with Phoebe Killdeer & The Short Straws. Notably, "The Fade Out Line," co-written with Craig Walker & Cedric Le Roux, was reworked by French deep house DJ The Avener as "Fade Out Lines," achieving global chart success.


Killdeer formed The Shift with Ole Wulfers, releasing the experimental album "The Piano's Playing The Devil's Tune" in 2016, featuring Portuguese actress and singer Maria De Medeiros. Their second album is now ready for release. She also co-founded Them There with Craig Walker, releasing "Love Is an Elevator" album in 2018, showcasing a range of talented musicians.

Recently, Killdeer reunited with Melanie Pain of Nouvelle Vague for "Kill The Pain," a project that blends humoristic storytelling with dynamic performances with a twist of Punk. Their self-titled debut was released in early 2023 and is currently on tour.


Her latest venture is a collaboration with Marc Collin, Tuareg musicians Sanou Ag Ahmed and Hicham Bouhasse, bending sound and time...


Killdeer is on a constant search to expand her sonic horizons, working not only with instruments but sonic sounds. The quest is in the creation of a piece of music that tells its own story. Her relentless pursuit of new musical horizons and ability to merge varied artistic elements make her a singular force in today’s music landscape, inviting listeners to experience music in more profound ways.
