Where were you born?
I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA.

Do you come from a musical family?
I come from a family that was kind of musical, but no professional musicians. My dad occasionally played guitar and my mom used to play clarinet and piano. I played piano/keyboard as a kid and later moved to bass (after trying guitar, drums, sax, and accordion).

What was your very first stage appearance?
My first stage appearance was with a church choir in first or second grade. It was absolutely terrifying, as they had me sing a solo, and I had never been in front of hundreds of people before. My first time performing on stage with a bass was at a pizza place in NoHo. I might have been playing for a year at the most. It was scary, but the people liked it. Our next gig was at a festival for $$$ and wasn't scary at all!

Which bassist do you most admire?
The bassist I most admire is Steve Harris. I love to play along to the Iron Maiden stuff!!

Tell us about your gear.
I mostly play Spector basses, and am one of their artistes. I have a 5-string fretless and three 5-string fretted ones. I also have a Fender P-Bass that is very custom. I made the pickguard out of an airplane cowling, and put my own inlays as well. The cowling came off of a plane who's nickname is "Kermit". That plane still flies out of Santa Monica! I recently got a Hofner, which was just for fun, but now I gig with it sometimes too!

Tell us about your current band.
I'm currently playing with Blonde Jovi. The band started out as a joke, but people really liked it. We are all blonde girls and play anywhere from small clubs to casinos and fairs. Its one of the funniest projects I've worked on! We are even going to be featured in Hustler Magazine later this year! We're the article, with some cool pix!!! I also play with my original band, Stattica, as well as a metal cover band that plays Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, & AC/DC. In my other spare time, I like to sub for bands if their bass player can't make a gig.

What other bands have you played with?
I've played with alot of bands, either as a member or as a sub. Some of the bands include The Singles, Love Bat, Uncle Nancy, The Crashers, Mz Led, Flesh Cartoons, Logan05, Twist of Fate, Aeroplane Soul,
Relax to Paris, to name a few... It's a long list, I can't name them all!

What is your latest CD/album?
My lastest CD is with Stattica. I've recorded several albums with them. It should be out later this year.

What are your hobbies?
I am also a pilot, so I post everything from music to flying videos to random pictures on my website. Check some of the videos out - you'll find some interesting stuff there! I even have one up from when we went flying in the Goodyear Blimp!

Where were you born Joy?
Hallo! I come from the sunny Italy! I was born in a medieval small city in Umbria called Narni.

Do you come from a musical family?
Luckily I come a creative family: my mommy was a painter and my daddy was a guitarist. My parents have teach me to love all kind of arts, music especially.

What was your very first stage appearance?
My first concert was seven years ago. It was the final exhibition of a musical school. At that time I was still learning how to play the electric bass. Everything started from a rock passion!

Which bassist do you most admire?
When I started my idol was flea ( from RHCP). At that time I was a crazy punky girl! Then I started studying and listening to different kinds of music. When finally I approached jazz, my favourite bassist become Mr. Ron Carter. When I met him I was 18 years old.

Tell us about your instruments/amp/gear?
My double bass is an old instrument from 1820, it was handmade in Germany and is a ¾. My best pickup is a Realist but I'm thinking also about a Fishman. My electric bass is a Fender Jazz bass USA from 80's. My amp is the best: Gallienkrueger!

What bands/ensembles do you play with?
I play with different jazz bands. We love to play standards, mostly. My "Inner Urge" should be a new project for my first sextet. I'm workin' hard about it! I'm also a composer and I'm trying to compose all the scores for this project . .We'll see!

I played classical with several orchestras, my last experience was in Germany four months ago. I played in the Humboldt symphonic and Jung philharmonic Berlin orchestra. I loved it!

What are your hobbies outside music?
I love drawing ,relaxing, reading. Books and films are really a good company for me. I like to stay alone because I like peace, but I also love my friends and my family. They say that I'm a really good cooker and I love cooking, most of all sweets.

What is your latest CD/album?
We are still working about our new recording: "Hearthing". It will be a nu-jazz oriented Cd with some of my best friend, great Italian musicians. I hope it will be produced soon!
