Janel Leppin

Idioma disponible: inglés
Cellist, singer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, Janel Leppin is known for her experimental and textural blend of jazz, Indian, and Persian classical music, folk, and indie rock. Leppin first garnered acclaim as one-half of a duo with her husband, guitarist Anthony Pirog, and has recorded with artists like Eyvind Kang and Marissa Nadler. On her own, she released both Mellow Diamond and Songs of the One-Armed Woman, Songs for Voice and Mellotron in 2016, and American God in 2017. Ensemble Volcanic Ash, the eponymous debut from her expansive collective, arrived in 2022. Born in 1981 in Vienna, Virginia, Leppin grew up in the D.C. metropolitan area where she earned her degree in cello performance from George Mason University. While there, she also minored in dance and world music and began exploring the city's vital punk and creative music scene. It was during this period that she formed a lasting partnership with guitarist Anthony Pirog, forming the duo Janel and Anthony and releasing a handful of ambient indie rock albums. She has also recorded with a bevy of artists and bands from across the musical spectrum, including Eyvind Kang, Marissa Nadler, Beauty Pill, and more. As a solo artist, she debuted with 2016's Mellow Diamond, on which she mixed her avant-garde pop with ambient leanings. A second album, Songs of the One-Armed Woman, Songs for Voice and Mellotron, arrived the same year. Recorded in 2015 while Leppin was recovering from an elbow injury that precluded playing cello, it found her singing and playing Mellotron and Prophet 5 synths. With 2017's American God, she combined her synth and cello sound on an album of politically charged songs inspired by the 2016 American Presidential election. In 2022, she debuted Ensemble Volcanic Ash, an expansive, jazz- and classical-influenced instrumental album featuring her band of the same with guitarist Pirog, bassist Luke Stewart, harpist Kim Sator, drummer Larry Ferguson, alto saxophonist Sarah Hughes, and tenor saxophonist Brian Settles.
