Melissa Auf der Maur: The Session Musicians

Melissa Auf der Maur: The Session Musicians

Melissa Auf der Maur combines the command of a rock star with the adaptability of a studio musician. The Montreal-born bassist played in Hole and The Smashing Pumpkins before notching her own hits, like 2004’s “Followed the Waves,” that capture her love of throttling alt-rock. But it isn’t just her muscular basslines that garner respect; her tough yet melodic vocals have appeared on records by the likes of Rufus Wainwright and Ric Ocasek.
