Jim Hall/Primitivejim.com Emile Milgrim is a powerful lady drummer.
There is a commanding, outwardly visible shift that starts to happen to a Girls Rock Camp attendee. It takes place somewhere around midweek. Terminal shyness, remnants of self-doubt, and any sour notes start to fade as more important things like song structure, sisterhood, and powerful stage swagger gain significance.
"If you can take on a new instrument, you can take on anything in the world!" musician Steph Taylor professes convincingly. She's working with fellow musician and Sweat Records' Emile Milgrim to bring a South Florida version of Girls Rock Camp into fruition this summer.
Taylor's father showed her every song by the Beatles on piano, songs that she picked up and played at an obsessive rate while still in grade school. This helped strengthen her as a person and musician. Now, Taylor wants area girls to know that same wonderful feeling.
