Amanda Ruzza is an electric bass player and composer based in New York City. Born in São Paulo, Brazil, Ruzza developed an eclectic musical ear at an early age. By age 13, she was already gigging professionally. While in Brazil, she worked with distinguished Brazilian producers and arrangers, including Grammy Award-winner Moogie Canazio, Maestro Jobam and Sony Music Japan's Osny Mello. Currently, she performs with groups in a variety of styles, such as Global Noize, Jill Sobule, and Chris Stover’s Caetano Veloso Project, as well as with her own band, the Amanda Ruzza Group – Amanda’s multicultural background has influenced her passion for composing music that incorporates elements of funk, jazz and South American rhythms, which can be heard on her debut album This Is What Happened.
