Manuel Llosa on SoundBetter

My goal is to capture an artistic impression for your songs, nailing the bass lines but also playing some phrases that can bring color and soul to your music.

I´ve been touring and recording with artists of different styles, pop, singer-songwriters, R&B and other for the last 15 years, always focused on playing what music needs to groove.
I´ve been also producing my own projects with a freer and more creative musical approach, which has contributed a lot to my work as a sessionist.
Im offering to record a tight bass line following the drummer or compose a more free, open or melodic one that can color your music.

In my soundcloud you can find some songs from my projects

    Manu is one of the most effective session bass players I ever worked with.
    He´s got great taste and he is very accurate. I always had what I needed on first take.
    As a producer, He is very clear on his needs and also very receptive.

Interview with Manuel Llosa

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: I am working as a film music composer and producer, recording as a session player for various artists and also producing the third album by Gonzalo Di Muro, a great musician from Argentina.
