hails from El Paso Texas, where she began her
musical expedition at the age of 4 by attending Yamaha
Music School. There, she learned to read and write
music, as well as play a variety of instruments. Upon
departing from the school, she began taking piano
lessons. She also began playing guitar around the
age of 12, and soon after picked up the bass guitar
and began playing in the school jazz band. Influenced
by artists such as Aerosmith, Heart,
Blondie and Led Zeppelin (to name a
few), Dyna joined her first rock band as a lead singer/keyboard
player at the age of 13. Over the next few years,
she would play in several bands throughout El Paso
and Dallas, mostly as a bass player and/or singer.
Since moving to Los Angeles, she has played
bass in several rock acts, including Warbride,
Sister Strange, 12 Angry Men, and Phantom
Blue. Some of her other projects include being
a back-up singer for Capitol recording artist Rob
Vinton (son of Bobby Vinton), and playing bass
guitar in "The Bud Light Ladies" back-up band,
The Party Girls. Most recently, she has been fronting the all-female tribute acts ThundHerStruck (AC/DC) and Hammer of the Broads (Led Zeppelin).
During the summer of 2000,
Dyna hooked up with producer Mars Lasar and began
working on her self-titled debut CD. Their first
song, Innocent Affair, attracted quite
a bit of attention and the CD was featured on KLOS's
Local Licks radio show.
HERE AND NOW
Dyna is currently wrapping up production on her second CD, entitled 2DY4, which will be released in early 2012. She is also shooting a video for one of the songs from the new release - a song called "Superstar". More information coming soon, so stay tuned!
