Former Broadway musical theatre performer turned drummer, Ginger created her Los Angeles based band in 2008. It was then an original rock band with songs she wrote as a singer with various guitarists. Overtime it morphed into a blues/rock cover band, and now finally a blend of both originals and covers from the 1960s to today. The 7 piece band plays everything from Ike and Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, and David Bowie to Portugal The Man. Sometimes the band is broken down into a trio, Ginger's Blues Trio for a still electric, yet toned down acoustic version. Why should you watch and listen? Because as Los Angeles reviewer James Hebron from 405 East said, "Ginger, the little firecracker with a lot of soul, has a heavy burned emotional vocal breach that can horse-kick any bad attitude."

Rapper JohnBoyCool is a fast rising star within the Compton Hip Hop community - you can see him surrounded by his peers on the cover of Kendrick Lamar's 'To Pimp A Butterfly' album; he and his Pirate GVNG crew have been featured on Vice TV's "Noisey," as a straight up rap artist he's opened for acts like 2 Chainz - but for his latest project PLVNK (pronounced Plank) he wanted to explore other sounds and styles.

A chance meeting led to a collab with Israeli singer Nachum Peterseil (frontman for Automatic Toys, an alt-rock group with a love of all things electronic.) Despite coming from completely different backgrounds and cultures, the two vocalists found that had a lot in common ("He literally survived wars...and I have my own stories to tell".)

After a series of successful live shows, plans were set in motion for writing sessions to continue that vibe. 'JB' brought in Joey Mora (a.k.a. 'The Klassiks', a maverick Hip Hop and Dance music producer), whilst Nachum drafted Automatic Toys drummer Sir Mal, a UK recording artist with a list of credits including Pete Yorn and Andy Allo.

"We've got the rapper telling his stories; this old-school, rocking lead vocalist from Israel, the hopeless romantic from London...from the beat, the producer - they're putting in what they've been through. Love and Life and Society. This music crosses boundaries...it's for Everybody, not just this or that community...different friends, kids, your Grandma!"
