Johnette Napolitano is best known as the singer/bassist/writer for the LA band Concrete Blonde. Her stunning solo debut, 'Scarred' (Hybrid Recordings) made the Village Voice's Pazz & Jop list as one of the best of last year. Johnette spent most of 2007 touring the US to support 'Scarred' with a powerful acoustic set that featured Concrete Blonde classics as well as the new solo material, including a beautiful version of Coldplay's 'The Scientist', recorded with former NIN and producer Danny Lohner for the film 'Wicker Park'. Johnette lives in Joshua Tree, California, in her cabin studio and has collaborated most recently with Billy Howerdel from A Perfect Circle on his new project, Ashes Divide (Island). Other collaborators have been poet and Native American activist John Trudell, The (Talking) Heads, David J (Love & Rockets, Bauhaus), and others. A multi-instrumentalist and experienced recordist, Johnette works with artists all over the world via satellite from her high desert home: she supplied music for two recent Australian films, 'Candy' and 'West'. Johnette also worked on music for the films 'Underworld' and 'Dead Silence'. A dedicated artist, she has studied art in Mexico and Flamenco in Spain. Factoid: 'Ghost of a Texas Ladie's Man', one of Concrete Blonde's Western-style rockers, was written after Johnette had a late-night encounter with the famous Driskill Hotel Ghost when the band was on tour with Sting in the late 80's.
