Ethel Lynn Oxide
Adopting her moniker from her roller derby career, Ethel Lynn Oxide learned vocal training at an early age through her involvement in accapella choirs. Motivated by an interest in obscure and forgotten instruments, Ethel taught herself the musical saw. The Wedding Funeral showcases this as well as her multi-instrumental talents.
