Daniel Kimbro on SoundBetter

I'm a Grammy-nominated bassist w/ extensive experience in studio and live, on both the Upright and Electric bass, in the US and UK. Performance appearances include Jerry Douglas, James Taylor, The Earls of Leicester, The Transatlantic Sessions, Martin Harley, Sarah Siskind and many others. Check out my Soundcloud playlist below for demos! Thanks!

Hi everyone. I'm a "doubler." What is that? It's a bass player who works well on both Upright Bass (Double Bass, Contra Bass, Doghouse, Bull Fiddle) and Electric Bass (old school Fender stuff, modern fusion projects, Country and Pop). I've got two undergraduate degrees in music (Classical & Jazz) and I've got something like 22 years experience as a performing and touring bassist. Lately, you can catch me performing live w/ the Jerry Douglas Band and The Earls of Leicester, and The Transatlantic Sessions (Irish / World Music). I’ve done a lot of Blues and Jazz, really anything that involves any kind of roots-based music.

The nice thing about being a bassist is you get to play in all kinds of ensembles. I've been lucky to record bass tracks for so many different genres, and I think that's crucial these days; genre-lines are being redrawn and blurred more than ever. I get a huge kick out of working with other artists to find "the sound" for their songs.

Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

    Daniel is one of the strongest, most creative and grooving bassists I've had the pleasure of playing with. He brings a lot of skills to the table as well as a great attitude. Hire him!
