ROCK & ROLL AMMO is a rock and roll photographer, multi-instrumental musician, and songwriter who spent her youth ditching school in lieu of delving through bins at record stores and scouring the LA music and art scene in hopes of running into like-minds. Her music has been said to “shackle the living or free

the dead…” (Grimy Goods) by creating mystical magnetic

soundscapes – “the kind of music that should soundtrack a

sand-dune-to-shoreline road movie by David Lynch” (LA

Record).

Her storied history in shooting fashion editorials and

directing short films and music videos have given her

the tools to achieve a deeper connection with her

listeners. These artistic mediums empower her

exploration of illusive and melancholic topics

which offer listeners an emotional and visceral

experience by creating a dialogue between the

imagined and physical.

Enveloped in a number of music,

photography and film projects she has

produced a feature film while taking on the role of

director of photography, she also co-founded PLAG

Presents, a platform for womxn musicians and the

LGBTQ community voices to be heard. Additionally,

leading drroppop, shoegaze band Brass Box where

Post-Punk.com describes them as “a surreal reverie

that has the sonic texture of crushed velvet imbued

with the lingering scent of burnt incense and clove

cigarettes circa October of 1993.” Past projects

include Black Flamingo, Darklands and Tête.

Her debut 2020 single ‘Total Recall’ as part of The

Sound charity tribute compilation on Dune Altar is

being followed up by Rose + Crown, an original

work co-produced and recorded with drummer,

Alex Posell of Black Flamingo. Rose + Crown was

brought to life amidst the isolation and swift

emerging darkness wrought upon the world by the

pandemic. The song echoes themes of catharsis and

freedom from self-imposed shackles, physical or

psychological.
