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 scene as member of the band Swans, university studies in literature and theatre, global travels, and a history of extensive recordings, collaborations (Philip Anselmo, Attila Csihar, Blixa Bargeld, J.G. Thirlwell, Merzbow, PanSonic, Chris Connelly, Neurosis and many others), and performances (clubs, theaters, art galleries, cathedrals, festivals, live radio, television, film).
Jarboe’s voice and music is known for bold experimental as well as melodic diversity and expression. Over the course of her life through efforts in past and present disciplines, Jarboe explores the rebuilding / reinventing of identity and the elemental structures of personae.

“For fourteen years the sole constant member of Swans, and also the creative force behind half a dozen solo releases, Jarboe is one of the most remarkable women in extreme music” – Terrorizer
“..A diabolical crossroads meeting between Bessie Smith and Diamanda Galas… Jarboe can be a gospel blues belter or screeching sorceress with equal devious ease. Her flexible and hugely expressive voice leaps from the whimpers of a terrified child to avenging Shiva screams without pause or warning.” – Willamette Week
“Jarboe somehow turns the simplest moment into mind-crushing intensity” – Kerrang.
