Artist Biography by

A spoken word performer on the periphery of the mid-'80s L.A. performance art scene, Cecilia +- also fit in on the fringes of that city's post-punk community, which has always had a fairly strong interchange with the spoken word medium (i.e., Exene Cervenka's forays into both music and speech). Her 1986 album, little noticed there or anywhere else, had some reasonably effective pieces backed with atmospheric music, and bears some relationship to the work of Patti Smith and (more distantly) Jim Morrison when they chose to speak rather than sing.
