Jaspar Lepak – is a folk/Americana songwriter whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry. A child of the Sonoran Desert, her songs are deeply influenced by the many places she has called home: Tucson, Minneapolis, Durban, and currently Seattle. Sweeping across landscapes with an emotional depth that is extraordinary, her lyrics expose a brave vulnerability while her clear, pure voice touches the heart. Tonight, she will be joined by her husband Kale who accompanies with accordion and harmonies.
Lepak started writing songs in 2002 while living in Minneapolis. Between 2004 and 2009, she recorded five albums, and in the fall of 2009, she and Kale moved to Durban, South Africa. Her music found an enthusiastic audience, and in 2011, she recorded “Forgiving Wind” which Rolling Stone South Africa hailed as an album full of “beauty and original charm.” Lepak became a Seattle resident in 2012 and released her seventh CD “Wide World” in April 2014. She tours frequently between her former homes and her new home in the Pacific Northwest. More about Jaspar at http://www.jasparlepak.com
