No one has mentioned Elin Sandberg?
Esperanza Spalding is absolutely incredible. Emily's D+Evolution is one of my favorite albums of the past 10 years...
Honorable mention goes to 12 year old bassist Alejandra Villarreal with The Warning. The Warning are three sisters from Monterrey, Mexico. They became famous (on YouTube) after covering Enter Sandman at a very young age (9, 12 and 14, respectively). Ended up on the Ellen Show and received a summer scholarship to Berkeley. Released their debut album XXI Century Blood earlier this year. Great stuff.
I really like India Bourne (plays with Ben Howard). She's not flashy and as technical as are a lot of the bassists on the list, but she really holds down a nice groove and plays mulitple other instruments as well. Just thought she deserved a mention.
Glad to see Janice Marie Johnson from Taste of Honey mentioned. I think she's very good. Favorites are probably Kim Deal and Carol Kaye. Tracy Wormworth is also fantastic. Love her bass line on Christmas Wrapping with the waitresses. I think Kathy Valentine (Go Go's) was a nice player.
Yo Pumpkin go on youtube asap and check out Mohini Dey and tell me what you think. LOL She is on her own planet bro.
Leticia Perez from Despise You
Jo Bench from Bolt Thrower
A shout-out for Brandi Wynne:
Not been through the whole thread so dont know if she's been mentioned but recently I came across Mohini Dey who's a great talent.
Gail Ann Dorsey if not mentioned deserves plenty of acclaim and I would like to give a shout out to Kim Clarke from Defunkt who is an exceptional player.
Andrea Goldsworthy bassist for Paloma Faith.
I was going to do that! Here she is with the B-52's:
I like Tal too. But I'm not sure she's the best female Australian bassist, not that it matters. Check out this Aussie lady on bass:
Tracy Wormworth. Easy question!
No question after seeing this. A bassist who fronts her own band and sings lead. What a voice she has, too!
