Jaspar Lepak (pronounced Jasper LEE-pack) is a folk/Americana songstress whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry. "Singing with the kind of Americana, lullaby ghost of a voice that listeners search for in roots music" (Twin Cities A.V. Club), Lepak is best known for her bell-like voice and introspective storytelling.
A child of Arizona’s Sonoran Desert, Lepak started writing songs just after college while living in Minneapolis. Between 2004 and 2009, she recorded five albums, and in the fall of 2009, she left Minneapolis with her husband Kale for Durban, South Africa where they lived for two years. Her music found an enthusiastic audience, and in 2011, she recorded her sixth CD, 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 was honored to perform in 2013's Northwest Folklife Festival. She tours frequently between her former homes and her new home in the Pacific Northwest.
