ABOUT

Phoebe Sanger is a Melbourne-based artist originally from Albury, NSW, and has written for folk-rock band Dapplegrim and accompanied Domini Forster in her trio. Her songs, inspired by artists such as The Decemberists, Laura Marling and Anais Mitchell, often contain a mystical element and she loves to play the storyteller.

Where do you usually draw inspiration from as a writer? Do you have a process? eg music first, lyrics first etc

I love to draw inspiration from stories; fairy tales, video games, friends' stories, anything that captures my imagination. I often start with a single idea or theme (either musical or lyrical) and go from there.
