G&L Artist: Marissa Paternoster

Marissa Paternoster

G&L guitarist (and S-500 fan) Marissa Paternoster has been grabbing the attention of the guitar-playing public for a few years now. In fact, a lot of people are noticing this fireball, six-string shredder who fronts New Jersey based rock band Screaming Females. In May 2012, SPIN Magazine listed Marissa at #77 on their list of "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," proclaiming that, "Even after five Screaming Females albums, it's hard not to feel unexpectedly smacked upside the head by Marissa Paternoster's guitar, which -- like her bracing singing voice -- still sounds way too massive to be wielded by any human being without superpowers and way too confident to fit comfortably within the confines of indie rock." In October 2013, RedBull.com featured Marissa in an article called "Meet The 30 Best Guitarists Under 30."
