Lead Vocals, Guitar, Piano, Head Swiftie
Much like Taylor Swift herself, Gina began playing music professionally at a very young age. At just 18 years old, she became the lead singer and guitarist for the Chicago-based alt rock band Emil Muzz who had already achieved some notoriety with an appearance on MTV. At 21, Gina formed Rockit Girl, an all-female pop-punk band and released its debut album, "The Lift Off E.P.", produced by Louise Post of Veruca Salt.
At 22, Louise recruited Gina to join Veruca Salt as the bassist and co-lead vocalist, filling the hole that Nina Gordon had left after her sudden departure. Shortly after, Gina and Louise joined up with Courtney Love and Patty Schemel from Hole to form the all-female but shortlived supergroup, Bastard.
After touring with Veruca Salt, Gina returned to Chicago to write and record the second Rockit Girl album, "Bright Lights." After the Bright Lights tour ended, having spent most of her young adult life as a professional musician, Gina took a long hiatus from music to start a family with fellow musician (John, Burning Red guitarist.)
But after a decade away from music, Gina felt the pull to sing and play music on stage again upon becoming an obsessive Swiftie. She started Burning Red with John as a way to pay tribute to and celebrate Taylor Swift and other Swifties.

Lisa G started singing at an early age and was heavily influenced by her musically-talented mother who exposed her to a wide variety of genres and singing harmony. Lisa sang in numerous talent shows, at church, and participated in many musical productions including being Maria in "The Sound of Music".
After college, she began a career as an elementary school teacher and ended each day at the piano leading her 2nd graders in song, teaching them how to read using song lyrics while experiencing the joys of music.
Lisa managed to continue her teaching career, start a family, and still be in many local bands on the weekends. She sang in The Ritz with Syl Legner and Ron Scott’s Orchestra, both big bands that traveled to local dance spots. Later, she started a variety duo called Two for The Show and a solo act called Girls’ Night Out covering female artists of all genres.
Currently, Lisa fronts a 6-piece band covering hits of the 70’s & 80’s in central Illinois called Lisa G and The Good Reasons, while also following her dream of being a back-up singer with Burning Red in Chicago, singing Taylor Swift’s intricate and thoughtfully-placed harmonies on her vast collection of story-telling songs.
