Name: Jennifer HigdonDates: 1962-presentWhy she rocks: She taught herself flute and composition at the age of 21, and is now one of America’s most famous and most performed composers. She won a Pulitzer prize for her work in both instrumental and choral music. In her spare time, she also fights for LGBT and women’s rights, and has composed several pieces inspired by these topics.
Quote: “Now, very few composers write for themselves. I hope to change that.”Because of this woman… we have so many beautifully composed pieces that we can enjoy from the 20th century.

Thalia Zedek has spent decades out of the hard oversold limelight, instead skirting the edges where her style has made its way into some of the most pivotal sounds of American music. Artists like Kurt Cobain, Dinosaur Jr. and indie god Bob Mould have all tipped their hat her way.

Yet she still remains largely unknown. 

In our Off The Record series, we caught up with Zedek, where she performed in one of only a few places in Boston we felt were appropriate enough for such a dominant figure in music counterculture: The Model Café dive bar.
