Brazilian guitarist Marcela Campos recently released her new self-titled EP, which features legendary American Jazz fusion and blues guitarist Scott Henderson (“Driven”), along with three-time Grammy nominee and Emmy Award-winning bassist Philip Bynoe. The album features four distinct songs, each showcasing her dynamic guitar skills which have earned her endorsements with Daisy Rock Guitars, Spectraflex, and Steve Clayton Picks.
Campos, who currently plays for Fem Zeppelin (one of the biggest all female Led Zeppelin tribute bands), learned guitar at age 16. A native of Belo Horizonte (Brazil), she received private lessons with the renown Brazilian guitar player Roger Franco before embarking on a trip to America to sharpen her playing skills. Campos attended the Los Angeles College of Music (LACM), under the instruction of great players as Tariqh Akoni (Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Carlos Santana, Joss Stone), Jody Fisher (Mike Stern, Joe Diorio, George Benson), Art Renshaw (Joe Pass, Frank Gambale), Philip Bynoe ( Steve Vai).
