Meet Joanna Newsom

Meet Joanna Newsom, a harpist, pianist, singer, songwriter and also the 2nd cousin (once removed) of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

Newsom's work has become prominent on the indie rock scene, and her profile has risen, in part due to a number of live shows and appearances on The Jimmy Kimmel Show on ABC.

Both Newsom's harp playing and vocal style are unconventional… and so is she.

• Dating a musician known as Smog

• Favorite animal is a Seahorse, but she considers herself a land animal… so she would rather be a horse, but only a wild horse… not one which is owned - Whoa Whoa Whoa lil' doggy.

• Collaboartions include Cannabis Sativa, Galerina, and Psilocybe.

My best guess is she votes Green Party and Rainbow Coalition too. Check out her polymetric interview.
