TeeGee you did the same exact thing i did...I assumed she was an angry metal artist or some weird strange act.

Shes really not an angry girl . Her and her 3 sisters do clean power pop.

Its actually been compared to BB King in the regards of how when he bent a note, it looked like someone was twisting off his leg. Performing sometimes, an artist loses it.

She is not a vulger artist at all. Her and her sisters do power pop with harmless lyrics. Psychologists have even written on her, and how music effects performers. her face has also been discussed as to the same face people make during S...E...X... and how you could be lost in the moment.

Theres a bunch of articles on her lately and now its actually "part of her image" to make the faces but shes always done it and admits its involuntary.

Here she is...judge for yourself.

well, I have seen a few musicians live who are famous for pulling faces, including BB King, Santana and Robin Trower - and seen video clips of one of my guitar heroes Paul Kossoff - having seen this girl, they are harmless compared to her. When Kossoff or many others pull a face it seems to have some sort of connection to the music, i.e. bending a note or pounding a power chord, accentuating an emotional bit of music. With her, it looks more like Tourette syndrome, strange faces happening on any lick during a harmless pop song. But as long as it is not an "act" it's ok. Rock on girl

For those who have seen Keith Jarrett solo live you will know how ugly in every way his performance can be. If he's talking AT the audience you don't want to listen. You don't want to keep your eyes open if he's playing. So with eyes closed, and not hearing him say anything, you will experience an amazing performance. If not taking this advice you are likely to walk out. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BB9mMABRM0c

He'd probably bite her head off on stage. I was at a full house concert of Keith Jarrett at the Dorthy Chandler Pavilion in LA back in the 1970s. Before he played he gave a 10 minute lecture to the audience basically telling them to fuck off (go home) if they were going to cough during his performance. I think he's an Asperger's type with no ability to have normal social contact, but a musical genius. An example (if you're not already familiar):
