Sam Phillips December 5
I once spoke briefly to Sam Phillips at a mini-tour show she was doing in Tyson’s Corner at a now defunct Borders. Odd location or not, she put on a terrific show. Funny and charming. Afterward I went up to her and told her the first time I’d heard her song Reflecting Light, on a cross-country flight back from LA to DC, it brought tears to my eyes. She smiled and, without a trace of sarcasm, said “Now my career is complete.” We’ll interview her on December 5 to talk about her new album, Human Contact is Never Easy, her new work on the new Gilmore Girls series on Netflix, and whatever else she wants to chat about.
