Phoebe Killdeer became known performing with the French new wave band Nouvelle Vague second album 'Bande à Part' (2006).
Following her work with Nouvelle Vague, Killdeer went on to pursue a solo career, forming the band Phoebe Killdeer & The Short Straws, and releasing her first album, Weather's Coming, in 2008. Killdeer's second album with the group, Innerquake, was released in 2011. Killdeer's musical style is influenced by Tom Waits and by 1960s rock and blues; her voice has been compared to that of Peggy Lee and of PJ Harvey.
A song from the second album, @thefadeoutline, co-written with @craigwalker ( Archive ) was subsequently reworked by the French deep house producer TheAvener. It was released in September 2014 under the slightly altered title, Fade Out Lines. The song charted in several countries, reaching number one in Germany, Spain, and Austria, and reaching number 3 in France, and number 6 in Italy.
Killdeer later moved to Berlin where she began a new project, Phoebe Killdeer & The Shift, featuring Thomas Mahmoud-Zahl and Ole Wulfers. Their first album, @thepianosplayingthedevilstune (2016), is an experimental collaboration with the Portuguese actress and singer @mariademedeiros .
Her latest band project Them There , with @craigwalker, released an album in 2018 in France, featuring the talents of Tyler Pope on Bass, Knox Chandler, Jan-Hendrick Schmid on Guitars, Tim Gane on Keys, Raphael Seguinier on Drums, produced by Victor Van Vugt.
