O Marissa Nadler
Marissa Nadler is an American musician and visual artist living in Boston, Massachusetts. Active since 2000, she is currently signed to Sacred Bones Records and Bella Union and released her seventh studio album Strangers in May 2016. Her work is rooted in old-school country and folk, but brings elements of experimental and black metal. Sometimes the term Dream Folk has been used to describe their work.
Nadler, who sings in mezzo-soprano, has received much acclaim for her vocals. Her voice has been praised in many quarters. The Boston Globe said, "She has a voice that in mythological times might have lured men to their deaths at sea, an intoxicating soprano dipped in gossamer tones, reaching bell-like heights, lingering and evaporating like smoke rings" .
