The Upful LIFE Podcast – Ep.066: ALANA ROCKLIN [bass – STS9, sub-ID]
Welcome STS9 bassist ALANA ROCKLIN! Based in Nashville, Rocklin has a diverse musical background and thorough collaborative resumé. Mentored by the great Victor Wooten, she studied jazz improvisation at the University of Michigan. After a few seminal years immersed in Chicago’s fertile avant garde, she eventually made her way back to Music City, where she worked as a session musician for some time.
Long before her stint with STS9 began, Alana and her husband Brad Bowden befriended the band in 2001. The duo formed experimental electronic project sub-ID, releasing music on STS9’s 1320 Records. Rocklin has toured with Jim James‘ solo project, worked with J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League on Rick Ross/Andre 3000‘s otherworldly “Sixteen”, and has session credits on numerous other releases. Jazz, classical, rock, hip hop, and IDM electronic are equal components of her extensive musical toolkit.
Alana joined Sector 9 in early 2014 after founding member David Murphy’s departure. She’s been an essential cog in the quintet’s jamtronic wheel ever since. Give Thanks and a ***Deep Bow*** to Alana Rocklin for being so generous with her time, and for this illuminating conversation!
