Law to Phx
Law to Phx is the Alt Americana project of Minneapolis singer/songwriter Justin Law and a cast of friends.
With Law to Phx, Justin taps into the influence of Patty Griffin and Minnesota legends like Jayhawks and Gear Daddies.
The album I Got Scared in the Summertime was recorded and produced over the span of two summers with Law’s longtime friend Matt Uttech. The goal, common to projects coming out of The Law Collective, was music from a collaboration of friendship.
Justin and Matt began with songs Justin had been writing as a follow up to Justin’s prior album The Phoenix. The album, fueled by local beer and local pizza spot Pizza Luce, features lead guitarist Steve Bosmans, bassist Mark L. Jonsson, local singer/songwriters Brianna Kocka and Naomi Marie, and Uttech on multiple instruments.
The album’s lead single “Snow King,” dropped in April 2020 in the midst of a pandemic, carries the album’s recurring themes of how the past shaping our present and inviting us to ask deeper questions.
Both gritty and spiritual, I Got Scared in the Summertime is now available now on digital platforms.
