Artist Biography by

Lou DeMartino is a New Jersey-born rock bassist who, since the '80s, has played everywhere from Asbury Park to Scotland and Italy. Born just before the second wave of American rock & roll started to manifest itself, he's fluent in just about every sound and variation of the latter that's come down since. Where possible, DeMartino also maintains a tradition that goes back to classic country bands, of the bassist as a repository of humor. He is mostly associated with Joe d'Urso & Stone Caravan, but he has also played and recorded with Chaz DePaolo and, most recently (as of 2009), the Maledictions.
