Liza brings a wealth of musical knowledge and guitar discipline to the duo. A guitarist from the age of 8, Liza went on to obtain her degree in classical guitar from Cal State Northridge. She soon served two masters - classical guitar and voice by day, and rock and roll bass by night. She traveled the world, playing in the rock group Vixen as well as backing up former Santana singer Leon Patillo.
During her stint playing guitar in Lindsay Buckingham's 1993 solo tour, she met JP, joining him in his Steely Dan cover group, Pretzel Logic. Shortly thereafter, she and JP married, and they were off writing music for Entertainment Tonight, which eventually went into the general Paramount music library and was used extensively in many different movies and TV shows. By the time Liza started playing with the Jim Stubblefield Group (which would eventually morph into Incendio), she had production credits on 6 different CD's under her belt as well as countless TV credits.
JP comes from the world of rock and the blues. Raised in West Los Angeles, JP missed British synth pop completely, opting instead for the rawness of punk rock as well as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Eric Johnson. However, JP is also of Peruvian descent, so artists like Trio Los Panchos, Los Morochucos, and even Julio Iglesias sat side by side with more rock-oriented music. It is this wealth of South American traditional and pop music that JP came to fuse with rock and jazz through Incendio, a vein he continues to mine in his guitar duo explorations with Liza. Just prior to their meeting, JP got his degree in economics from UC Berkeley, and had worked both in the music industry (at MCA Records) and in Spanish-language television (working at both Univision and Telemundo assisting the production of live music events like Fiesta Broadway).
Aubrey Richmond was born in Sacramento and grew up in northeast Washington state, 100 miles from the nearest city. A classical student turned competitive fiddler, she’s been touring with Shooter Jennings for the past four years and recently ended a tour playing/singing with Duff McKagan of Guns n’ Roses. Following an invitation from Barnett, Aubrey immediately fell in with the Mustangs of the West, explaining, "The band is a group of not just solid players, but people who really shine at what they do." That's exactly the quality great bands share; not always an easy mix to find.
