ABOUT

Hi! My name is Noelle, and I'm a 25 year old bassist living in Los Angeles, California.

Please contact me for recorded audio. If you have any requests for audition material in a specific style or with other requirements, I will do my best to provide it.

As a disclaimer, I am a transgender woman. If you either see this as a problem, or don't believe it to be a problem but can imagine it becoming a chore to not, for example, misgender me at practices, I wish you the best but you should probably look elsewhere. Otherwise, I'm sure we will get along :)

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Influences

I have the most experience with grunge + 90s alt rock (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Rage Against the Machine, etc.), but currently I find myself excited by math and post rock, and enjoy following Japanese alternative music/shoegaze. My 3 favorite bands at the moment are Zutomayo, Tricot, and Elephant Gym. However, I try to make an active effort to be familiar with a wide variety of genres, from acid jazz to prog metal. I am also working towards learning music composition, primarily in jazz and game soundtrack styles.

As far as playing goes, I'm open to pretty much anything. I have a reasonably extensive theory base to draw from, so adapting to genres that I have comparatively less experience with is not an issue.
