Bio

hola! thanks for stopping by...
a BIOGRAPHY is supposed be about the true courses taken in life, but the commercial music industry is not interested in that. it is too preoccupied with puppets perpetrating hype and unprincipled standards. it is obvious that it is only one of many corporate industries pumping out toxic waste and it is an industry crumbling before your very eyes. i just make whatever music i want to make whenever i feel like it because it is fun and it's a positive way to make sense out of nonsense :) are you o.k. with that? and now for the dry statistical information of an "official bio" as noted:

A unique combination of self taught guitar, candid lyrics, and exuberant melodies makes LadyBug one of the most refreshing artists emerging from the music industry today. A large part of her dynamic musical influence comes from old Spanish ballads and the nostalgic rhythms of salsa music ingrained in her upbringing. This essence blended with the electric edges of punk rock and the impact of soulful vocal interpretation, is what gives the Bug her signature percussive flavor as an acoustic performer.

LadyBug was born in Brooklyn, NY of Puerto Rican/Ecuadorian heritage and began studying piano at the age of five. She taught herself to play guitar by shaping inventive chords around fervent writings. In 1999, LadyBug formed the energetic industrial rock group, "bLANk", with drummer/producer Oscar Dorta and worked her way onto the stages of Miami's AT&T Bayside Musical Amphitheatre, the Hard Rock Cafe, and the legendary Churchill's Pub. She went on to be voted "best female rock vocalist" by the Miami New Times in 2001 and nominated "best female vocalist" at the South Florida Music Awards in 2002, when she released her first independent E.P. entitled "Plug Me In".

After returning to her hometown of New York in 2003 and collaborating with different musicians, LadyBug ultimately connected with neoteric lead guitarist Josette, jazz-seasoned bassist Phil Smith, and the innovative, rock solid drummer, Jessie Torrisi. On stage, they permeate through audiences with a bold presence of playful textures and quirky progressions. It is a cohesion that spray paints infectious melodies with kinetic skill and urban individuality.

The group is in the process of completing their first full length independent C.D. entitled "A Vein Inside a Quetzal's Daze" with Canadian producer and musician, Chris Brown and has teamed up with Jess White of Un-manageable Artists Management company. The recordings will be available in the fall of 2006.

Both as a solo artist or with her band, LadyBug has played in Miami, Boston, Philadelphia, traveling solo through Mexico, upstate NY, and all over New York City including venues such as Piano's, Sin-e, and Joe's Pub.
