Being the bass player and one of the main singer/songwriters in her previous band, Ginger had the opportunity do many exciting things. With her band she has toured the United States many times over including performing on the Vans Warped Tour for two years in a row. She has toured the UK five times in the past year, for months at a time. She has done two USO tours after 9/11 playing shows in Bosnia, Kosovo and Germany. She has recorded on and released an album for EMI''s Tooth and Nail Records and received a gold record for the sale of 500,000 copies for a recording on the Freaky Friday Soundtrack in 2003. From 2001-2002 Ginger was also the bass player for an A&M Records band where she had the opportunity to work with legendary producers John Porter and Michael Beinhorn. She has also performed live with producer Linda Perry and fellow solo artist Sierra Swan twice in the past few months.
But all of these opportunites have only resulted in making one thing clear to Ginger, "Life is short so I want to make the best music I can from my heart." To her this means writing songs without compromise. Her music is powerful, melodic and full of pop and rock sensibilities. Her main influences are the Beatles, Elvis Costello, Superdrag and Elliot Smith, although she has a style all her own. Her solo project Ginger Sling, named after a lyric in the Beatles'' song Savoy Truffle, is backed by a rocking band with herself on bass. With Ginger Sling she proves that she is a veteran of live rocking performances but also that she has a passion for pop melodies.
With Ginger Sling in existence for only six months, Ginger has already recorded a 5 song EP called The Room and played some shows on the Vans Warped Tour this summer. Her music has been featured on this season''s The Real World and she continues to do local shows in Orange County and Los Angeles. She is also sponsored by Fender USA, Dunlop Manufacturing, Hurley Clothing, Paul Frank and Vestal apparel.
