Who is Eva Gardner?
Currently rocking out in arenas and stadiums all over the world as the bass player for Pink, Eva Gardner is also widely known as the original bassist for The Mars Volta. While she did not perform in the recording of De-Loused In the Comatorium, and left the band to deal with the passing of her father (famed bassist, Kim Gardner, from The Creation and a huge part of the British Invasion), Eva is a musician through and through. She is a graduate of the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts and holds a degree in ethnomusicology from UCLA, but Eva is a player at heart. Her resume includes Veruca Salt, Moby, Cher, Tegan and Sara and many more. In 2014, the Eva Gardner signature Precision Bass was released via Squier for Fender, making this the first female signature bass from Fender. While she continues to tour with Pink, she has also, officially, returned as the bassist for The Mars Volta while also releasing her own solo work, Darkmatter. Enjoy the conversation…
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.
