Ep.12: Jill Emery – From Hole to Mazzy Star to the Haven of the Easel

Available on Apple PodcastsSpotify and YouTube.

This week, I’m having the great honour of exchanging thoughts with an artist who has participated in the shaping of 90s western culture through music: Jill Emery, musician and painter extraordinaire. She is perhaps mostly known for being part of the band Hole (yes, the one led by Courtney Love), as well as of Mazzy Star, among many other seminal acts. As you’ll see, she came out of the intense grunge era days with a lively and colourful presence, both humble and strong, and expressing her spirituality through both her paintings and inquisitive mind.
