Larkin Grimm (born September 18, 1981) is an American singer-songwriter and musician born in Memphis, Tennessee.[1][2][3][4]

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.[5] 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.[6] 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.
