Winona, actually, from Trenton, New Jersey. A singer/songwriter, session singer, and producer. Longtime member of LaBelle (in all its many forms), she chose the avant-funk route after their breakup, with stints in Talking Heads (she has sung on various Heads recordings - e.g. Remain in Light, tours, and solo projects) and Bill Laswell's Material posse - musicians from these pools also helped on some of her early solo LPs. You've probably heard her voice without knowing it.
