With the release of her 1993 debut album, Exile in Guyville, Liz Phair was quickly recognized as one of indie rock's most talented and exciting new songwriters. The album was praised extensively by the press and won Phair an enthusiastic following among alternative rockers. Liz Phair, who studied art at Ohio's Oberlin College, began making home-recorded tapes while living in Chicago. These lo-fi recordings caught the attention of the indie rock community, and soon Phair signed with Matador (who released her debut album). Phair went on to release several albums in following years and played at the famed female music festival Lilith Fair. Hit songs from Phair's career include "Supernova," "Why Can't I?," "Extraordinary" and "Everything to Me."
