Tina Weymouth

Tina Weymouth (born Martina Michéle Weymouth on November 22, 1950 in Coronado, California) is a founding member of the influential post-punk group Talking Heads. She is of French heritage on her mother's side. A bassist, she combined the minimalist art-punk basslines of groups such as Wire and Pere Ubu with danceable, disco inflected riffs to provide the bedrock of Talking Heads signature sound. Her sound is often very funky in feel, combining low fundamental notes with higher flourishes in clipped, staccato rhythms. Tina is also a founding member of Tom Tom Club, a Talking Heads side-project with the Talking Heads drummer Chris Frantz and, more recently, has recorded songs with Gorillaz. She has been married to Frantz since 1977, and they have two sons together.
