In a career of more than two decades, Sam Phillips has built an intensely loyal fan base that has tracked the evolution of her music from Beatles-esque alternative pop to seductively stripped-down torch songs - with an intriguing side trip into the world of The Gilmore Girls, where she served as composer. And she continues to enthrall music critics and her fellow musicians. In fact, one of the most highly praised tracks on the new Robert Plant / Allison Krauss collaboration, Raising Sand, ""Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us,"" was written by Phillips and appears on 'Don't Do Anything' in its original form.

This is the first album that Phillips, who plays both electric and acoustic guitars as well as piano, has produced on her own. Don't Do Anything has a more pronounced rock feel than her two previous Nonesuch discs, especially on tracks like ""My Career in Chemistry,"" ""Under the Night"" and the title song. She has assembled an enviable coterie of smart Los Angeles musicians, including the Section Quartet, a string ensemble renowned for its interpretations of the work of rock artists like Radiohead and David Bowie. She's also joing by drummer Jay Bellerose (Aimee Mann, Joe Henry, Rickie Lee Jones); bassist Paul Bryan (Martha Wainwright. Norah Jones); and keyboardist Patrick Warren (Michael Penn, Bruce Springsteen).
