 Notes & Reviews
 
Born 26 years ago in Memphis, Tennessee, to hippie devotees of the religious cult the Holy Order of MANS, Larkin Grimm was raised by multiple 'parents' in the commune environment of the cult until age six, Grimm spent the remainder of her youth in the Appalachian mountains of Georgia after the cult disbanded. With five siblings and challenged economic circumstances, she won a full scholarship to Yale to study art. After temporarily dropping out of school to hang out for a couple years with eco warriors, vagabonds, and sexual deviants in Olympia, Washington, Grimm returned to Yale, where she was a member of Dirty Projectors for a while. Upon graduation, she moved to Providence, where she was an active participant in the city's noise scene and made a few albums of improv/free-form songs for Secret Eye Records. Grimm's taste for music comes from her old-time fiddler and singer father and her folksinger mother. She naturally developed into an absolutely gifted singer, fingerpicker, and multi-instrumentalist. She's shared bills with Devendra Banhart, Spires That in the Sunset Rise, Espers, Brightblack Morning Light, Entrance, Viking Moses, the Microphones, and Old Time Relijun.
