More about Janis Lyn Joplin (January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970) was an American blues-influenced rock singer and occasional songwriter with a highly distinctive voice. Joplin performed on four music albums recorded between 1966 and 1970. The first two with the San Francisco band, Big Brother and The Holding Company, one with Kozmic Blues Band and her final release with Full Tilt Boogie Band. On each of her recordings, Joplin is listed as lead vocalist. Her highly-charged performances, coupled with a deep understanding of the genres of gospel, blues, as well as rock and roll, paved the way for the significant contributions that women who came after Janis Joplin could make in rock bands. Joplin's music became her spiritual reality within the physical world in which she performed and triumphed. Her personal demons overcame her and claimed her life. Today she is a highly regarded and influential figure in popular music.
