Our last Triple R Girl of 2009 is the very multi-talented, very gravitational SAMANTHA GIBB. She formed her band, MEG, in Miami Beach, FL, in 2002. The band consists of her dearest friends from club days on South Beach. MEG is Samantha Gibb (lead vocals, piano/keys, and rhythm guitar), Lazaro Rodriguez (lead guitar, piano/keys, percussion, and back-up vocals), and Nick Sallons (bass, percussion, and back-up vocals). The MEG/Samantha sound is melodic rock/alternative with touches of electronica and some yummy bass. It’s romance, soul, hope, melancholy and beats, all rolled into one.
What exactly is “Soul Punk” you ask? Kitana describes Sister Anne’s special sound as a potent mix of punk rock, a lil’ melodic metal, and rounded out with the soul that comes naturally when your singer grew up in the high-energy gospel church.
Our October Triple R Girl of 2009 is Camille Escobedo. She’s not only the front woman of Beretta76; she’s also the songwriter/guitarist/glue that brings the band together.
They rock. Imagine an amalgamation of garage/punk/rock/sex + awesome, and there you have it. Camille is our Triple R Girl because she’s talented, gorgeous, and knows how to make it happen. She and her band are on their way, and we hope our interview with her will inspire other women to ROCK.
We, at the Rock and Roll Report, are THRILLED to have had some one on one time with Camille, and here’s what happened:
