You know Phoenix as one of the bands on the Lost in Translation soundtrack. But did you know that their lighting guy is a member of the band, they nearly come to fisticuffs when deciding the set list, and that they are particularly inspired by martinis?
Phoenix, the sharp dressed, smooth-tongued Frenchmen who have resurrected modern pop-rock from the throes of boredom, is a featured Creator of The Creators Project, a modern-day media channel that will continually identify and celebrate the work of visionary artists wherever they are. It is also a content creation studio, an arts foundation of sorts that will facilitate the production and dissemination of new work with these artists and their collaborators.
