Boygenius FAQs


How Did Boygenius Form?

Boygenius formed somewhat spontaneously and organically. The three members – Lucy Dacus, Julien Baker, and Phoebe Bridgers – were already acquainted with each other before the formation of the supergroup.

Lucy Dacus had known Julien Baker for years, having opened for her in D.C. They stayed in touch over email, exchanging book recommendations and seeking each other's wisdom. Julien Baker, in turn, had always told Lucy Dacus about Phoebe Bridgers. However, Phoebe and Lucy only met in the year the article was written. Despite their independent busy schedules touring, recording, and writing, the three of them decided to embark on a joint tour.

The idea of forming Boygenius solidified as they were planning the tour. The members wanted to make the tour special, so they decided to perform together and thought about recording a seven-inch for tour promotion. Initially, the plan was to do a cover song and maybe one original song, but as they started working together, they realized the special dynamic they had. The project evolved from a promotional effort into something more significant. Phoebe Bridgers mentioned that they hadn't even considered a second record before they started working together, but now they view Boygenius as another band.

The recording and songwriting process was described as spontaneous and easy. Despite their different musical styles, the members found it easy to get on the same page emotionally. They exchanged songs via email, listened to each other's work, and had a workshop once they were all together in the same place.


What Albums Have Boygenius Released?

Where is the band Boygenius from?

Boygenius, the indie rock supergroup, doesn't originate from a single location. They are considered an American band, but the individual members hail from different places:

  • Julien Baker: Austin, Texas

  • Phoebe Bridgers: Los Angeles, California

  • Lucy Dacus: Richmond, Virginia

While each member has their own hometown, they often collaborate and record in various locations, making it difficult to pinpoint one specific origin for the band itself. Their sound definitely embodies the diverse influences of their individual backgrounds, adding to their unique musical identity.


Is Boygenius Breaking Up?

Boygenius isn't breaking up permanently, but they are taking an indefinite break. The band members want to prioritize their individual solo projects after enjoying considerable success as a group. While they hinted at the Los Angeles shows being their last, they did clarify that it wasn't necessarily a final goodbye. This hiatus leaves plenty of room for a future Boygenius reunion.

Phoebe Bridgers told Exclaim Magazine "I made the decision three years ago to take a massive step back. I think we all want a little break," Bridgers told Vanity Fair. "I can't function if I do anything in 2024 that is public. The boys have been my biggest supporters in that.""
