Phoebe Kreutz is a singer/songwriter-turned-bookwriter/lyricist from New York City.
Hailed by the New Yorker as “the Kingpin of the Joke Folk genre”, she’s brought her irreverent tunes to a million bars all over America and Europe.
Phoebe has also written some new musicals including “The Nice List”, “Holy Crap: The Worst Parts of the Bible” and “Go! Go! Gilgamesh!” – which won Best Musical and the Participant’s Choice Award at NYC’s Frigid Fest. A revue of her songs called “Awesomer & Awesomer” was created by Alan Muraoka and was met with wondrous acclaim from all kinds of fancy people.
She’s the recipient of the BMI Harrington Award for lyric writing and the Ellen Schwartz Award for Literary Merit in Lyrics. Her musical “In a Sunshine State” was selected for a Rhinebeck residency and has been a finalist for a bunch of other stuff. Other past projects include songs for Disney’s “Johnny and the Sprites” and Alex Timbers’s “Dance Dance Revolution” (both with frequent partner-in-crime Gary Adler).
But because life is strange, Phoebe may be best known as the “Pizza Nico” in Macaulay Culkin’s controversial parody band The Pizza Underground.
