Bass Standout Satarra Troutman By Ben LoPiccolo

Satarra Troutman stands out in GRAMMY® Camp's 2011 week in Los Angeles for more reasons than simply the fact that she happens to be the only female bassist, or guitarist in general for that matter. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, the young woman has talent that's just as attention grabbing as the bright green streaks in her hair.

Not only can she keep a tune on her bass, she's got piano and vocal chops too, the latter something that she attributes to her church choir upbringing. "I kind of enjoy being the leader," she says. With that determined dynamic, Satarra spent a day providing the low-frequency groove for her group's rendition of the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back." Feet tapping and body rocking back and forth, she even earned positive feedback on her performance from one of Camp's toughest critics, Sr. Director David Sears.
