Her original song “Hip Hop Frog,” a song about the environment, was licensed by HBO.  Her women-themed paintings and drawings are in museums and major collections. She stars in the Troma movies, TOXIC AVENGER 2 &3.

FFNA brings music and art to the children of low-income communities. Her last release HEART OF LOVE, broke the top 20 on Americana/Roots Music Radio charts. HITS magazine called Phoebe, “one of the most, inspired and talented creative-supernovas on the planet…One of those rare luminous souls… beautiful, wickedly funny, anointed with wisdom, and her music possesses Native American mystical and healing qualities. Like Billie Holiday or Jimi Hendrix or Miles Davis or Sun Ra…”
