This prolific American singer-songwriter and a post-punk pioneer is the founder, lead singer, songwriter and guitarist of Throwing Muses. From that launching pad, Hersh performs and records as a solo artist, as well as with the Muses. Known for creative chord chemistry, hypnotic sonic treatments, and a vocal style ranging from softly melodic singing to impassioned screaming, her signature contributions to popular music include addressing the complexities of marriage and motherhood through impressionistic, sometimes hallucinatory lyrics about everyday feelings and varying mental states.
