Boygenius is a new supergroup featuring three amazing singer/songwriters: Julien Baker, Lucy Dacus, and Phoebe Bridgers. Their self-titled debut EP came out recently via Matador. Now the band have stopped by NPR’s offices to perform three songs as a Tiny Desk Concert. For the uninitiated, Tiny Desk Concerts are stripped down sets recorded at the desk of Bob Boilen, the host of NPR’s All Songs Considered. They performed three tracks from the EP: “Souvenir,” “Me & My Dog,” and “Ketchum, ID.” Watch the session below, followed by their upcoming tour dates.

They recently released the Boygenius EP digitally two weeks early. When the EP was announced they shared three of its six tracks: “Bite the Hand,” “Me & My Dog,” and “Stay Down.” “Me & My Dog” was our #1 Song of the Week and the other two songs also made our Songs of the Week list. Then the trio and their backing band stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to perform “Me & My Dog,” a song led by Bridgers.

Los Angeles’ Phoebe Bridgers released her debut album, Stranger in the Alps, back in September via Dead Oceans. Memphis’ Julien Baker released her new album, Turn Out the Lights, back in October via Matador, her first for the label. It was our Album of the Week and more importantly it was #2 on our Top 100 Albums of 2017 list. Richmond’s Lucy Dacus released a new album, Historian, back in March via Matador. It was also our Album of the Week.

The trio met via tours together and mutual festival appearances. They hatched the idea of their November tour together and thought they should record some collaborative music to perform on the tour.

“It seemed obvious to record a 7-inch for tour, although many adult men will try to take credit for the idea,” explained Bridgers in a previous press release. “When we got together, we had way more songs than we expected and worked so well together, that we decided to make a full EP.”

Dacus added: “A long time ago, before I even met Phoebe, Julien mentioned that she had a pipe dream of starting a band with both of us. Then we booked this tour and decided the time was right.”

Baker agreed that it was also down to good timing. “When we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavors, but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity,” Baker said in the previous press release. “Lucy and Phoebe are incredibly gifted performers, and I am a fan of their art outside of being their friends, but they are also both very wise, discerning and kind people whom I look up to in character as much as in talent.”

Of recording the EP, Baker added: “Everyone seemed both confident enough to present ideas and fight for their individual vision, but considerate and humble enough to make decisions which ultimately served the song. It was a process that required a balance of determination and forthrightness with graciousness and pliability, and I think that we all did a good job of enacting that.”
