That's not to say Bianqui sounds like Tina Turner, or like anybody else, but there's definitely something of the Ikettes review in her stage presence, and her history. Before breaking out with her solo material, Bianqui performed in local horror-garage band Isaac Rother & The Phantoms as well as in Jail Weddings across the U.S. and Europe. While her own career eventually took precedence over both those projects, she still finds time to play with psychedelic stoner rock band the Blank Tapes.
In a short amount of time, and only one recently released single
(on Lolipop Records) under her belt, she has managed to already get a swarm of press, including an LA Weekly Show Pick of the Week, "Ears Wide Open" feature on Buzzbands.LA as well as "Hot New Artist" on Grimy Goods.
In September of 2015, she put together the most well attended residency Hollywood's trendy venue Harvard & Stone has ever had, averaging over 200 attendees each Tuesday.
All of this without paying anyone for PR or management or booking. Yes, Bianqui has accomplished all of this by herself—a testament to the quality of her music and live performances.
If she is able to achieve this in just the first few weeks of pushing her own solo material, then it's safe to say the future is looking quite bright for the young songstress.

“Girls” is a shimmery slice of dream pop perfection, merging a lo-fi aesthetic with excellent guitar work, glittering textures and angelic vocals. -When The Sun Hits
