Girl Activity Bio
Girl Activity melds the in-your-face, buzz-saw guitar, and driving rhythms of the Foo Fighters sound with the understated, vulnerability of the vocal stylings of Liz Phair and influential indie pop group Belly. The group conveys a relaxed, plug-in-the-amp-and-let's-play attitude. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist Jessie Ambriz heads up an eclectic bunch with roots in soul, R&B, rock and heavy metal. The very talented Nick Jaffe, also of the group Soul People, plays lead guitar. His dynamic presence contributes to the band's enthusiastic range of the rock-n-roll genre. Alyson Carrel, who was a member of Popcanon, keeps it tight and in the pocket on bass. Nina Talia, formerly of the soul-funk band Thrillhouse Collective, lays down the beats on the drums and shares song-writing credit along with Jessie.
Girl Activity credits its song-writing style to influences such as the Ramones, AC/DC, Black Sabbath, the Muffs, and the alternative rock scene of the '90s. The songs are laced with catchy hooks and melodies that you'll find yourself humming after listening.
The band has just finished their first record, Broken Hearts and Righteous Anger. Truly a labor of love, the album was written, performed, recorded, mixed and produced by the founders of Girl Activity, Nina and Jessie. Live performances consist mainly of material from this record, along with new and driving singles, soon to be released.
