The first time I heard her music, it spoke to my soul. I twas quite like wandering in unknown territory until, in the distance you hear the song, another wolf howling... If I could make music like that... Well, she has a purpose and destiny. Beloved dragonslayer, you sing my spirit into being. And I thank you.

Jarboe has an intensity and passion that is all her own. Experiencing her sounds and presence is a truly an otherworldly encounter. Besides being an innovator and creating entire genres with her gift of music and art, she is a sincere, loving and friendly person. The best short description I can think of is 'PURE SOUL'!

Jarboe is..... Jarboe. Everything else I say is quite useless: words can't describe her.
Jarboe’s direction with her recorded and performed projects leads towards producing a brand of energy specifically her own. Her delivery can be at turns innocent, knowing, seductive, & vitriolic - contained in melodic as well as experimental compositions. A primary objective for Jarboe is to close in on the gap in the audience/performer relationship via complete submission and vicarious experience through her performance. This is at times done through visceral vocals and music from a variety of cultures and sound vignettes. She has optimized her repertoire to include a vast variety of voices from the shy schoolgirl to seductress to demon. Jarboe’s private agenda over the course of her life has been to fine tune endurance - physical, emotional, and spiritual. Through efforts in such disciplines as weight-lifting, kick boxing, mountain-climbing, running, role-playing, studies in meditation and Buddhism, and her intense work with Swans, she has journeyed her body towards exhaustion specifically with the intent of rebuilding / reinventing identity and exploring the structure of persona. Jarboe’s musical explorations have led to select comparisons to other female musicians with regard for their success in penetrating the otherwise male-dominated “rock” subculture. Her work in and outside of the legendary band Swans has received international attention from publications such as: The Wire, New York Times, The New Yorker, Time Out, Tip, Spex, People, LA Weekly, SF Weekly, Terrorizer, Rolling Stone, Art Papers, Outburn... Jarboe's inspiration is drawn from a variety of charged sources, spanning from her early exposure to snake-handling revivals in the Mississippi delta, to parents who were in the FBI, to participation in a lounge act, experimental performance in gallery & live radio settings, and her 14-year collaboration with worldwide concerts (clubs, theaters, festivals, live radio, European television) and critically acclaimed recordings in Swans. Featured prominently in Andrea Juno’s groundbreaking book: Angry Women In Rock, and Adele Olivia Gladwell’s women’s studies/cultural theory: Catamania, Jarboe is also a recipient of the corporate sponsored “Work In Progress” arts program that resulted in rock theatre The Living Jarboe performances in NYC, Chicago, and Atlanta. She has performed at the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Porto as a guest of the Serralves Foundation in Europe. Additionally, curatorial selected performances have included PS122 in NYC. Recent live performances have included tours with the Italian avant-garde group, Larsen and the American rock group,Neurosis as well as The Living Jarboe performances in the Baltic region, which included performances in cathedrals. In 2005, an East Coast tour of intense performance pieces involved the renowned San Francisco band, Amber Asylum. A sampling of the eclectic roster of Jarboe’s musical collaborators includes: Michael Gira, Bill Laswell, Jim Thirlwell, Lustmord, PanSonic, Mark Spybey, Steven Severin, James Izzo, Chris Connelly, Alan Sparhawk, Neurosis, Edward KaSpel, William Faith, David J, David Torn, Paz Lenchantin, Bill Rieflin, Iva Davies, Blixa Bargeld, Kris Force, Nic Le Ban, Julia Kent, Brian Castillo, Renee Nelson, and Lary Seven. She has worked with visual artists in design / film / photography including: Richard Kern, Beth B, Laura Levine, Wim Van De Hulst, Cedric Victor-DeSouza, and music video director Chad Rullman. As an “ internet pioneer, “ Jarboe was an invited panelist for “Artists and the Internet” at the CMJ convention in NYC. Jarboe has released 9 solo albums in addition to working on 20+ Swans albums and 60+ collaborative projects with visual & sound artists all over the world. Her cd, Disburden Disciple contained material she recorded in the Middle East. The Conduit is a collaboration between Jarboe, poet Joshua Fraser, guitarist Nic Le Ban, and her "Living Rumor" Internet subscriber list. The Knight Of Swords / The Beggar is a limited edition project with Nic Le Ban ( October 2005). The Men Album ( October 2005) features a diverse global selection of vocalists / musicians / producers. In progress is : a collaboration with (core Dysrhythmia members) " Byla", metal band " Cobalt", Justin Broadrick's "Jesu", London's "Guapo", and The Living Jarboe European and U.S. concerts. A spoken word cd to raise awareness of Amnesty International entitled The End is released 2006. A new cd project is in production entitled : "The Sweet Meat Love And Holy Cult". A severe wall of sound project is in pre-production and is coming 2007.
