Biography

Carla Bozulich is best known as the singer from LA-based band The Geraldine Fibbers and as the woman who re-made Willie Nelson’s ‘Red Headed Stranger’ — with Willie Nelson as a special guest. Carla has one of the most unique voices in any genre. Her work is at once brutally raw and weirdly visionary.

Born in New York City, she grew up a tomboy and girl protector in San Pedro, CA. Carla’s first appearance on record is Gary Kail’s album from 1982 called Zurich 1916, on which she does dada-inspired worldplay, “you know, telephone and vacuum cleaner stuff”. She sang in a couple of groups – the Neon Veins and Invisible Chains, the latter of which recorded an album for The Minutemen’s New Alliance label when Carla was 18 years old.

Carla disappeared from daylight for a few years, re-emerged, and was soon causing traffic jams as the gamine howler in the confrontational sex/sound assault outfit Ethyl Meatplow. In 1993, before Ethyl’s last gasp, Carla founded The Geraldine Fibbers, going on to record and tour incessantly with that band until 1998. Scarnella followed, a duo formed with Nels Cline, and a decidedly uncommercial, open, experimental project.

In 2001 she scored a Los Angeles production of Jean Genet’s The Maids and the award-winning feature film By Hook Or By Crook, which she also scored and for which she compiled the soundtrack, went to Sundance in 2003. That same year saw the release of Carla’s new rendition of Willie Nelson’s ‘Red Headed Stranger’.

    I'm really curious to find out how different Carla's new solo album is from the last few Evangelista albums. It comes out March 4...an early birthday present to me!

    Everything without exception that Carla Bozulich makes is magic erupting from a volcano of genious. This is what music is about: raw, intense, fragile, powerful, wise, poetic, sensual, desperate, imaginative, brilliant, tender and so extremely talented journeys into new and old parts of existence. Carla Bozulich is such an inspiring artist in this world, I am sure that mountains and several huge forests are breathing partly through some of her brave melodies. A natural force with a rare rare gift for making music mean so very much and be so deeply moving. I cannot recommend her music enough. Go see it, hear it, buy it and breathe it. Generosity in sound.

    "Prince of Truth" is all I expected and more. It's probably going to be my favourite album of 2009, I'm completely in love with it.
