(A Note from Editor-Publisher Mark Boudreau) This month’s Triple R Girl is the ultra-talented Crystal Fawn. If you always wondered who was behind the sexy voice introducing each episode of the Rock and Roll Report Podcast you need wonder no longer. Not only is a Crystal a talented bassist and model but she is a genuine joy to work with and professional to the core.
Crystal Fawn is a Miami based electric bassist, who enjoys performing multiple genres & styles. She plays bass for Featured On Fridays (FOF), a shred-metal, progressive group whose songs are a tour de force of wildly searing instrumentals, combining shred, jazz, country chicken pickin’ and even epic movie soundtrack-style melodies.
Crystal has studied with jazz greats Jeff Berlin and Ira Sullivan, and is currently under the tutelage of jazz/rock bassist Brad Russell from NYC. She has performed at music festivals with her band, and has performed with Ira Sullivan on stage for a July 4th celebration concert with an audience of 10,000 in Miami, Florida.
