Darci Phenix is a folk singer based in Portland, Oregon. She spent most of her early years on peoples’ shoulders at bluegrass and folk festivals, seeing musicians like John Prine and Emmylou Harris, and in her mom’s camper van visiting national parks. From jamming with friends at campouts to having artists nights at their house, Phenix’s mother, a public defender turned musician, taught Darci that music is first and foremost about community. As an adult, Darci’s songwriting has taken her to Wyoming, where she lived in an RV Park with a cowboy and to the doorstep of her soulmate friend and 92 year old poet, Kathryn Hohlwein; both of which experiences inspired her latest release Wishbone (Team Love Records). Gold Flake Paint has described her music as “a delicate paper doll’s house, revealing its rooms one by one.
