LIVIN' LOVIN' LED
Livin' Lovin' Led is a tribute to the legendary work of Led Zeppelin.
The visionary and driving force behind Livin’ Lovin’ Led is Natasha Neece. Being a passionate, creative, and spiritual woman, she is aligned with Led Zeppelin‘s dynamic, soul-bearing power and ability to journey. Teaming up with multi-instrumentalist and producer Michael Saint John who plays bass in LLL, the two are exploring fresh approaches to the raw, emotive, and undeniably epic soundscape that permeated the 70s and has proven itself timeless.
Natasha has been a professional singer/songwriter and performer since she was 16 throughout New York City, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, North Carolina, and now currently in Oregon. She is very thankful to guitarist James Fletcher, keyboardist Elena Kuzmenko, and drummer Craig Mesco who came together to actualize this dream project.

Allen Giardinelli has been playing music for 3 decades throughout 35 countries. He grew up performing and traveling the world with his musician parents, his father a producer/songwriter for European RCA and his mother a classical violinist with an abiding interest in rock, blues, and jazz. Al began performing at a young age, both in the recording studio and on stage, and by the time he was in his early teens he'd acquired a proficiency in multiple musical genres, playing music full time and also touring with several rock and blues bands.
Al discovered and developed a consuming interest in gypsy jazz, particularly the music of Django Reinhardt. Today Al has melded this interest with his lifelong love of Mississippi Delta blues to develop a unique style of his own, tinged with rock and Americana influences. He is an accomplished songwriter, arranger, and composer producing albums for his fellow musicians at Cymatic Sound Studios in Bandon, Oregon, where he can also be found performing in spare moments at Angelo's Italy.

The band's third album release from August 2017, "Tabula Rasa", was a substantial turning point in the band's musical style.
