Does anyone know of any songs with a female singing lead while also playing bass?
Sheryl Crow did a lot of these. Here’s one with Eric Clapton:
Gail Anne Dorsey showing how it is done…all class under pressure.
Amazing! Thank You for this. Gail Ann Dorsey is a goddesses!
I grew up to this lady. Excellent.
Another classic, Meshell Ndegeocello -
I need to check out her solo work, I’m not really familiar but it’s probably awesome!
Janice-Marie Johnson from Taste of Honey.
This woman blows my mind.
How. Do. You. Do. This??
Ooh cool, hadn’t heard of her! I like the mix of super-gnarly-fast synth bass and the vintage-y Jazz bass pops.
If you’ve never seen them (or Talking Heads) live, yes, Chris Frantz really is the chattiest drummer evar
There is a new Tal Wilkenfeld record out, where she apparently is also singing now (apart from playing the bass) - might be worth checking out!
