Grant Lee Phillips made a name for himself in the early 90s with his band Grant Lee Buffalo. In the early 2000s, he re-appeared as the town troubadour on the hit television show Gilmore Girls. All the while, he’s been honing his craft and turning out thoughtful, deeply personal works that explore his life, family and American Indian heritage. His most recent album continues in that vein. It’s called The Narrows.
Morning Shift talks to Grant Lee Phillips about his career and even his years as a child magician. And, of course, he plays some recent tunes.
