Merrill Garbus

Merrill Garbus found her voice through studying theater and puppetry, and by traveling the world. As the founder of the unclassifiable tUnE-yArDs, the Bay Area ensemble she’s led since 2006, has she has developed a distinctive blend of the raw and the cooked in music that’s technologically savvy, relentlessly self-exploratory, and spiritually unbound. tUnE-yArDs has released three albums, most recently 2014’s Nikki-Nack. Garbus’s singing style is instantly recognizable, a joyful reimagining of punk, folk, African music, and the work of predecessors like Yoko Ono and Mavis Staples (she has collaborated with both). She is also a producer, working with artists ranging from the rapper Latyrx to the indie band Thao & the Get Down Stay Down.
