About Outsider music

Outsider music (from "outsider art") is music created by self-taught or naïve musicians. The term is usually applied to those who exist outside of the music establishment or exhibit childlike qualities, and especially those who suffer from intellectual disabilities or mental illnesses. Its usage was popularized in the 1990s by journalist and WFMU DJ Irwin Chusid.Outsider musicians tend to overlap with "lo-fi" artists since their work is rarely captured in professional recording studios. Some of the best-known examples are Daniel Johnston, Wesley Willis, and Jandek, who each had documentary films produced about them in the mid 2000s.
