Beauty and the Bass: Eight Great Female Bass Players
This week's Guitar Girl'd column gives you the low-down on eight queens of the low end.
With 10 career Grammy nominations, Meshell Ndegeocello is a true multi-genre artist, incorporating funk, soul, hip-hop, reggae, R&B, rock and jazz into her creations. Credited for having "sparked the neo-soul movement," Ndegeocello was one of the first artists to sign with Madonna’s Maverick Records.
She’s been called upon to play with legends like the Rolling Stones and Alanis Morissette, and her songs have appeared on soundtracks for innumerable films, including How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Batman and Robin, Soul Men and many more. Equally talented as a singer and bass player, Ndegeocello’s November 2011 release, Weather, shows a kinder, gentler, more contented artist who has come to terms with her place in the world. Check out this bass-arific taste here!
