Soul Sisters Podcast: Edara 'Baby G' of Shinobi Ninja on Being Mistaken for 'The Merch Girl'

Duke Sims
Edara Baby G

Edara "Baby G," frontwoman of ubiquitous Brooklyn band Shinobi Ninja, joins Soul Sisters to tell us what it's like being the lone woman in a band with five dudes.

"They're my brothers. They know everything," she says, adding, "I'll be like, 'Guys, I'm on my period. I'm not feeling good today.'"

Of course that role comes with the usual misconceptions while on the road - like being mistaken for "the merch girl" at shows and being told, "I didn't know you were in the band!" But Baby G takes it all in stride, as the band continues to rule the game of guerilla marketing and social media campaigning (if you live in New York and don't know the band's music, you would at least recognize the stickers they've plastered on every bathroom stall and light pole in the city.)

"I have nothing to do with that," Baby G insists. "I'm just the lead singer."
