Country Right Now

by Phoebe Kreutz



“Country Right Now” is the first single of Phoebe Kreutz's upcoming ep "Leaky Canoe". It's a straight-up country song about hating country music- or at least what it represents at this moment in history. With the energy of an old-time mountain tune, Phoebe calls out the subtle racism and nationalism hiding just below the surface of so many country hits, while still offering a humane kind of patriotism and a beat you can square-dance to.

The world has changed a lot since Phoebe Kreutz first started singing about boys, bars, vikings and tacos back in the early 2000s. Full of human kindness, playful self mockery and a good amount of nerdiness,she searched back then for meaning in an endless parade of cheap beer and big books. The native New Yorker’s music was the perfect soundtrack for everybody who liked their singer songwriters quick-witted, quirky and profoundly funny.

Is there still room for these qualities in a world blown apart by Corona, climate crisis and a dangerously immature president?

Spoiler alert: Yes, there is!

With her new ep “Leaky Canoe” the self proclaimed joke folk singer Kreutz walks the line between outrage and affection, confusion and wisdom. Tuneful, fun and original, this tight collection of five songs proves the world is still worth exploring artistically - even during these strange times. With newfound maturity, she takes a frank look around, sharing her bafflement, frustration and hard-won joy.
