From the moment the seminal 2016 album A Seat at the Table landed in our ears, musician and visionary Solange solidified herself as a voice to be listened to, studied and respected. In Why Solange Matters, Stephanie Phillips chronicles the creative journey of Solange, a beloved voice of the Black Lives Matter generation. A Black feminist punk musician herself with her band Big Joanie, Phillips addresses not only the unpredictable trajectory of Solange’s career but also how she and other Black women see themselves through the musician’s repertoire. 

Stephanie Phillips is a British Midlands-based arts & culture journalist, content editor, and the author of Why Solange Matters. Her work has been featured in the Guardian, The Independent, Kinfolk, GQ, Crack magazine, New Statesman, and many more.

Stephanie will be interviewed by singer, session musician and presenter of Dublin Digital Radio’s Points of Intersection Senita Appiakorang.
