Nicki Tedesco is an American singer/songwriter and bass player from Los Angeles, CA. Her genres include pop, rock, electronic, alternative and metal. She is a solo artist who, in 2013, released an excellent album, Sweet as Freak. But, Nicki has also recorded with the industrial/trance band Delta-S, and toured with Grammy-nominated trance artist BT and alternative rock band Into The Presence. She also, occasionally, plays bass for the all-female Jimi Hendrix tribute band Foxey Lady with Marija “Maria” Krstic-Chin. In addition, Nicki works as a session bass player and owner of The Strands L.A., an audio post-production company.
Now, I think female bass players are sexy as Hell. But, I have a soft spot for bass players in general because, way back in the day, I once played bass. Not well, but, I played. However, one day, my bass guitar vanished, and, I never replaced it. Long story. Anyway, here’s to you Nicki Tedesco, adorable Kelly Ogden (of The Dollyrots), Emma Anzai (of Sick Puppies), Thérèse Lanz (ex-KEN Mode), Paz Lenchantin, and many others: your beauty is matched only by your mad bass skills.
