 Katrin Schmitz
Cambrai, France

Katrin with Popa Chubby


Where were you born Katrin?
I was born in Bückeburg, a small town of about 10000 inhabitants in Northern Germany

Do you come from a musical family?
Yes, you could say so. My mom played the piano every day when I was a child; singing along with it is among my first memories. Today I am married to a guitar player and our son plays the bass, too

What was your very first stage appearance?
I started modelling at the age of 6 (yep! no kidding!), so being on stage never was difficult or "exciting". My first "band" gig was probably an acoustic guitar duo; we were comping the kids from a local school.

Which bassist do you most admire?
That must be Oteil Burbridge. There are so many great bass players out there, but the one that sticks out like a sore thumb is Oteil!

Tell us about your gear.
I am lucky to have the complete deal of my dreams - strings, bass and backline are what I always wished for - and I am dealing with the companies directly. The bass is a Sandberg California PM4 Custom Shop. It's one of a kind, MY bass, and it sounds like no other instrument I ever played. it comes with a "Jazz" style neck, a P and a MM pickup plus a pretty lightweight body. Just what I need. I use Pyramid Pure Nickel 40-100 exclusively.
Behind me, there's a TEC AMP Tiger 600 W Top on a TEC AMP 2*12 cab. This combination does the trick on stage; big enough to be heared by everyone, small enough for gigs in small clubs. They are doing things the right way at TEC AMP, and they voiced the Direct Out to sound like my actual Rig. The dude at the mixing table gets MY sound: top plus 2*12 the way I like it.

Tell us about your current band.
The Electric Church is among the very few jam bands out here in Europe. We are oscillating between blues, southern rock and psychedelic stuff. A classic line up with two guitars, bass and drums; I do most of the singing by now, and I honestly love the energy that radiates from the band. We're good, when we're good!

What other bands have you played with?
The one band I played before was named "Sunday 16" (we formed on a Sunday, 16th of February. Just a brit-pop and cover outfit :o(

Apart from your own, which countries have you played in?
I live in France and I played in France, England, Belgium and Germany so far.

What is your latest CD/album?
The Electric Church released "BABELFISH" in October 2007 on the "Tribal Stomp" label. Check our website or last.fm for a quick listen before you buy the CD.

Do you have a message for people who will read this?
Spend less time on the net and more on stage :o)
