Joanna Newsom was raised in the small town of Nevada City, California. Her parents did not allow her to watch television for fear the constant violence and general stupidity might have a harmful influence one her. At the age of five she became interested in playing the harp and today describes the harp as not just an instrument but something that is a necessary part of her. She has self-described her voice as “untrainable.”
Joanna Newsom’s musical offerings are pretty unique. The song posted today is one of my favorites. The studio version of this song is quite crisp, but I like the look and feel of this live version.
