Tina started playing bass when she was 15. Coming from a musical family, bass agreed with her and she was soon playing in her high school ensembles and local Rock/funk groups. Her love of music lead her to Binghamton University, where she majored in music. During her time in Binghamton, she never had a dull moment, playing with her own rock/funk band, Del 40 and the GLYF Jazz Quartet, as well as playing in the Harpur Jazz Ensemble, orchestra and various local groups.
In the past decade, Tina had performed with the Neal Massa Trio, The Ventilators, and has performed alongside John Serry, Danilo Perez, Rufus Reid, and has performed with Tony Bennett. She is featured on numerous recordings of various genres.
Tina now resides in Brooklyn, NY, where she is completing her Masters in Jazz Performance at The Aaron Copland School of Music, CUNY Queens College.
