Phoebe Bridgers turned a challenging year into a memorable one.
In June, the Los Angeles native released her second solo album Punisher to critical acclaim, and healthy slice of commercial success.
Punisher catapulted Bridgers to No. 1 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart for the very first time, after the LP debuted at No. 43 on the Billboard 200 and at No. 2 on both the Alternative Albums and Vinyl Albums surveys.
Later, in October, she launched her own record label Saddest Factory, in partnership with Dead Oceans. And to top things off, she just bagged four Grammy Award nominations, including a best new artist nod.
On Tuesday night (Nov. 2), Bridgers suited up and stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform album track “Savior Complex,” with a jolly Christmas theme.
When music historians look back on 2020, there just might be a page on how Bridgers spun a punishing year into the year of the Punisher.
