Gia Frederico is an instrumental rock guitarist based in Boston, United States and she operates both in the alt-rock band Devil In The Mist and solo under the Gia G moniker.

This 3-track EP shows her to be an incredibly skilled guitarist with obvious influences from Steve Vai and Joe Satriani with the songs covering all points from metal through to mazy, intricate jazz. Frederico plays guitar and keyboards with some very easy and comfortable support from Mark George on drums and Paul Angle on bass and they make for a very tight and formidable trio.

Of course, you need more material on which to make a judgement but the three songs here are all beautifully played, complex work outs with Frederico showing herself to be possessed by incredible skills and a talent for writing quite delicious tunes.
