Bio

LA singer songwriter Gina Villalobos is back with her sophomore effort "Rock
N Roll Pony." "...can someone tell me why i'm standing underneaththe city / can someone tap me so i don't miss my entry..."
Her lyrics come off as effortlessly as a speaking-in-tongues fever dream in the middle of a
straight tequilla night. Gina's music reminds us that the grimy honky tonk
sway of primal rock and roll can be the perfect vehicle for the best of
songs, the kind that convey the paradox of being happy and sad that the same
time. Despite the moments of refreshing optimism on "Rock N Roll Pony,"
there is an underlying theme of anxiety in these songs. In true Gemini form
they blast into ecstasy through blow-the-top-of-your-head-off melodic hooks
and shameless guitar parts that bring you right back into that certain
cathartic '70s nostalgia - a hormonal twelve year old on her first visit to
a Malibu canyon honky tonk perhaps. Despite the flashbacks, Gina's
dirty-country-rock avoids the kitch factor of many recent new bands. This is
because underneath it all, these are serious songs, redemptive songs, songs
you don't just want to hear but need to hear. If you're depressed, her music
is way better than whatever drug you're currently tweaked out on.
