Joan La Barbara (born June 8, 1947) is an American vocalist and composer who provided vocal effects for the Newborn in the 1997 film Alien Resurrection. Alien Resurrection was La Barbara's first film role.

La Barbara is known for her explorations of non-conventional or "extended" vocal techniques.
