American singer-songwriter and musician. Jarboe draws from a variety of sources: childhood in the Mississippi delta and New Orleans, life in NYC’s east village during the post no-wave era in the band Swans, university studies in literature and theatre, global travel, and a history of extensive recordings, collaborations, and performances (clubs, theaters, art galleries, cathedrals, festivals, live radio, television, film). Jarboe’s voice and music embodies versatility and emotional conveyance in bold experimental and melodic expression. Over the course of her life, Jarboe has explored and discarded structures of personae.
