On McKinney Music, “the best independent music magazine in the UK“, pop, indie, and classic rock-influenced singer-songwriter Phoebe Zara releases “Tomorrow Problems”.
Phoebe Zara, a singer and songwriter, is pleased to announce the release of Tomorrow Problems, her debut studio album. Recorded at L. Austin Weeks Recording Studio in Miami, FL and VuDu Studios in Port Jefferson, NY, “Tomorrow Problems” comprises of 11 unique tunes that integrate sensations of freedom with the need to track down comfort despite defeat.
Zara, who describes her style as “Joni Mitchell with an edge,” says that “Tomorrow Problems” was curated from songs that were always meant to be put together, but were waiting for her to realize it. She wrote the sunny, tropical “Bliss” several years ago, and “error message”, a jazzy 5/4 lament, was written after the rest of the album had already begin recording.
Zara sings lead vocals and plays guitar throughout the album, and ukulele on the album’s title track. Reese Ortenberg plays lead guitar, Logan Renneker plays bass, Kyle Skarshaug plays drums, and Sydney Miyao plays keyboard.
The driving, upbeat rock anthem “You Got Me” and the upbeat rock song ” Here I Am in Mine,” a semi Latin score with a twist ending, are highlights; as well as the upbeat pop-rock title track.
Individuals and the issues of today frequently return tomorrow, so what are we to do? Defer tomorrow by staying awake all night, or get it by its neck, swing it around, and say, this is exactly the very thing we’re doing, Zara pondered. When you are at a standstill, your next move may be uncomfortable or even painful, but there is nowhere else to go but up, and there is no better target than that.
Individual tracks from “Tomorrow Problems” can be searched on TikTok, Snapchat, and Instagram, in addition to being available on Amazon Music, Apple Music, Pandora, and Spotify.
