ABOUT

Hi! My name is Noelle, and I'm a 23 year old bassist living in Los Angeles, California. When I'm not doing music things, I play games competitively, practice my Russian, and watch anime.

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 (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, etc.), but currently I find myself most excited by math and post rock, and enjoy following Japanese alternative music. My 3 favorite bands at the moment are toe, Tricot, and Elephant Gym. However, as with any competent musician, I make an active effort to be familiar with a wide variety of genres, from acid jazz to prog metal.

As far as playing goes, I'm pretty open to most genres!
