Jessi Zazu, the co-founder of Those Darlins and innovative singer who bridged country and indie rock sounds, died following a very public battle with cervical cancer in Nashville on September 12th. She was 28.
"Yesterday I said goodbye to my best friend, longtime partner in crime and hero, Jessi Zazu Wariner," Those Darlins drummer Linwood Regensburg said in a statement. "She maintained a sense of humor and a commanding presence up until and through her final moments. She was in the company of those who cared deeply about her and who she cared deeply about."
