Who is Bridget Kearney?
Bridget Kearney doesn’t talk much about the electric bass (mostly because that’s not her instrument of choice). The musician and composer is a double bass player that graduated with a dual degree from Tufts University and New England Conservatory of Music. She started playing the bass when she was nine years old and fell madly, deeply in love with the instrument. But, let’s get to today. Today, Bridget is an established solo artist and neck deep in live dates and recording with Lake Street Dive. Kearney’s debut solo album, Won’t Let You Down came out in 2017. Lake Street Dive released their eighth album, Free Yourself Up, this year. We caught up with Bridget while she was on tour with Lake Street Dive.

What is Groove – The No Treble Podcast?
This is an ambitious effort. This will be a fascinating conversation. Our goal at Groove is to build the largest oral history of bass players. Why Groove? Most of the content about the bass revolves around gear, playing techniques, and more technical chatter. For us, bassists are creative artists with stories to tell. They are a force to be reckon with. These are the stories and conversation that we will capture. To create this oral history of why these artists chose the bass, what their creative lives are like, and where inspiration can be found.
