Rob Calder on SoundBetter

I am a bass payer currently living in Los Angeles. I’ve played on numerous platinum recordings, with artists as diverse as Passenger (Rock/folk) to Declan ORourke (Irish) to Kanye West (hip hop), and everything in between. I can travel to you wherever you are in the world, or I can send you bass tracks through the internet.

I’m a Hoosier at heart, and for some who don’t know, a Hoosier is a person proudly born and raised in Indiana. I’ve been playing music all my life. My classical musician parents started me very early on piano and violin. Later on in college I picked up the electric bass on the suggestion of a good friend, and the rest is history. I love so many styles of music, and one of the great things about being a bass player is that I get to play all these various styles.

I’ve recorded with Passenger, Angus & Julia Stone, Dope Lemon, Declan ORourke, Tom Freund/Ben Harper, Brett Dennen, Passenger/Ed Sheeran, Kanye West, Michael Brunnock/Glenn Hansard, Colin Smith, Sharon Corr, Jenna Nichols, Jonathan Coulton, Hamish Anderson, Paul Kelly/Angus Stone, Break & Repair Method, Will Stratton, Matt Nathanson. I’ve worked with producers Mitchell Froom, Rick Rubin, Phil Ramone, Kieran Kelly, Jim Scott, Eric J, Chris Vallejo, Mario Mcnulty, Jay Joyce, Gerry Leonard.

Whether I travel to you in your studio of choice, or if I record my bass tracks for you in my own studio, I will be well prepared, on time, and I’ll be more than happy to be working with you. There’s nothing better than playing music.

    I just finished a recording session with Rob @SingSing studio in Melbourne/Australia. Such a great experience working with Rob who brought so much to the songs. Super warm and deep bass sound, well prepared, bringing many cool ideas to the tracks. Moreover we had a lot of fun working together and with the rest of the team. Rob is very professional and such a nice person too.
    Can't wait to record again or tour with Rob!
