Phair was adopted as a baby by a well-to-do couple with another adopted child. She had a conventional, middle-class childhood, but began to rebel in high school. She graduated from Oberlin College in art, but it is in popular music, girly sound, that she has made her name.
Her first album was Exile in Guywille (1993).
She says: "it would limit me psychologically to find my natural parents."
