An inexplicably up-and-coming harpist, harpsichordist, singer, and songwriter with a very distinctive singing style and a more than eccentric fanbase.
Dane: Just wait until you hear "Bridges and Balloons." It's so deep and moving, and probably my favorite Joanna Newsom song.

James: Wtf, turn that sh** off -- she sounds like a dying cat!
