Phew was a founding member of the legendary avant-garde punk band Aunt Sally in the late 1970s. After the band’s breakup in 1979, she continued her career as a solo artist, releasing a collaborative single with Ryuichi Sakamoto in 1980, and her first solo album with Conny Plank, Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit of CAN, and with Alexander Hacke from Einstürzende Neubauten in 1981.Her third album Our Likeness, released in 1992 on Mute and re-released in 2023, was also recorded in Conny Plank's studio and counted on the support of Liebezeit, Hacke and Chrislo Haas from DAF.
Since the beginning of the 2010s, she has released a series of works that combine voice and electronic music, and has gained international recognition as an electronic artist in the experimental music scene. The albums “Japan’s underground legend” (Pitchfork) created over the last 40 years have gone from record store rarities to being included on many “best of” lists. She has worked with New York producers and bassists Bill Laswell and Jim O'Rourke, with the Japanese underground supergroup Novo Tono, with Seiichi Yamamoto (ex. Boadams) or with Ana da Silva from the London Raincoats, among others. Recently she recorded an album with the Berlin artist Danielle de Picciotto.
