She was born into a monastic order called Holy Order of MANS. Larkin’s dad, one of nine kids who grew up in a German town in Ohio, is descended from the legendary Grimms' Fairy Tales creators and was a "bad boy" biker in the ’60s who got swept up into the "whole commune thing" when he fell in love with a blonde girl escaping empty bourgeois values. The Grimm family owns a music store in Dahlonega, Georgia, where she grew up. She earned a scholarship to study at Yale where she studied Architecture, Painting, and English Writing. At 20 years old she dropped out of Yale, and moved to Alaska, where she hiked and began to experiment with singing. Several months later she was convinced by a friend to return to Yale, where she began to record her first album, Harpoon, which was influenced by her experiences performing with the Dirty Projectors. She then moved to Providence, Rhode Island, where she has since produced another album called The Last Tree. Larkin's third album Parplar was released October 2008 by Young God Records.
