Intisaar Jubran is a self-taught singer and a trained guitarist of 13 years. Half Palestinian, a quarter Armenian and a quarter Welsh, Intisaar was raised with both Arab and American culture. She grew up all over the country, including Virginia, California, and Washington, and has chosen Seattle as her home base. Her music is both technically complex and soulful, combining influences like the Beatles, Loreena McKennet, The October Project, Tool, Tori Amos, Joni Mitchel, Bjork and even Michael Jackson to create a unique acoustic sound. What stands out the most are her powerful melodic vocals and her lyrics. As an English major at the University of Washington, Intisaar studied poetry and literature, focusing on French and American poets. Her lyrics, whether abstract or obvious, are always delivered with mindfulness and are highly visual in nature.
Her live shows include percussive accompaniment by drummer Paul Campbell, as well as bass and strings at times. As a singer-songwriter Intisaar is no stranger to playing alone with just her guitar, however her sound and presence have only benefited from the addition of talented musicians with whom she now graciously shares the stage. She has played venues in and around Seattle, including the Rendezvous, the Nectar Lounge, Fuel, Cafe Mona's, and the Musiquarium Lounge at the Triple Door. She has also performed as an accompanying guitarist at the Showbox Market with members of The People Now.
