Judee Sill (1944-1979)
Judee Sill was an American folk singer. She grew up under harsh circumstrances, but learned piano, guitar and took a keen interest in the music of Johann Bach. Her family were very religious. As a result of these influences her songs take on visionary, sometimes surreal religious undertones in well-achieved polyphony.
