Kim Deal Style

Kimberley Ann Deal (born June 10, 1961) is an American singer, songwriter and musician, best known as the bassist of the alternative rock band the Pixies. Deal first joined the Pixies in January 1986 as the band’s bassist, adopting the stage name Mrs. John Murphy for the band’s releases Come On Pilgrim and Surfer Rosa. Following Doolittle and the Pixies’ resulting hiatus, she formed The Breeders with Tanya Donelly and Josephine Wiggs. After the Pixies reconvened in 1991, Deal felt increasingly sidelined by the band’s frontman, Black Francis; this led to the Pixies’ breakup in early 1993.
