Kembra Pfahler

Kembra Pfahler is an American performance artist and rock musician best known as the lead singer of the cult glam-punk band The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black. She is known for the often sexual nature of her exhibits.

Born in 1961 in Hermosa Beach, California (although one source says she is originally from Malibu Beach ), she became a major figure of the 1980s East Village scene. Pfahler has also acted in low-budget horror and softcore porn films.

Well known in fashion circles and spanning the fine line between cult and haute, Pfahler also does film and video work. She follows the artistic philosophy of availablism, using what is closest at hand as both the inspiration for her work as well as the medium.

She is the sister of Adam Pfahler of the band Jawbreaker.

Kembra and Samoa founded their band, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, in 1990.
