Stella has been drumming since she was 13 and is quite the accomplished and decorated musician. In 2006, she found a home with front man Neal Carlson, guitarist Nick Maybury and bassist Grant Fitzpatrick and formed MINK.
Their sound is raw in that it has no theatrics, no showy pyro-madness, no electric voice box trickery; Just good, smart lyrics, catchy guitar riffs, and infectious drum and cymbal beats that make them serious players. Having penned over 60 songs already and collaborating with names like Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Kiss, and Perry Ferrell, to name a few, prove their seriousness.
In contrast, Stella’s persona is cheeky, humorous, and likeable. Check out this video which captures a bit of her wit and a bunch of her talent.
Here is Mink’s video for their first single Talk To Me

Stella is currently residing in LA working on other Stellar projects, be sure to keep an eye out.
