Thalia Zedek might be entering the fourth decade of her career as one of the most singular voices in rock, but she shows no signs of creative fatigue.
Throughout the 80s she rose to prominence fronting Uzi and Live Skull, before founding Come with Chris Brokaw in 1990.
Come’s classic first album, “Eleven:Eleven” is being reissued by Matador in May, it’s 21st anniversary.

It will serve to cement Zedek’s position as a bandleader, a songwriter, and as a pioneer who, like Kim Gordon, Kim Deal, Lydia Lunch, and Patti Smith, paved the way for so many others.
After Come called it a day in 2001, Zedek began making music under her own name to high acclaim. Upon the release of her last album, 2008’s “Liars and Prayers”, Time Out New York proclaimed, “Nothing draws as much blood as the work of this songwriter, one of the most painfully honest and brilliant anywhere.”
