Bill Shinn on SoundBetter

Greetings! I'm a guitar/bass player and writer/arranger with 35+ years experience, mostly as a session musician in Austin, TX and NYC, among other places.

I've been playing guitar and bass since I was 7, and have been a studio rat since I was about 15. I'm also pretty good at writing instrumental music and arranging, and I'm comfortable playing nearly any kind of music as long as it swings. I work quickly, efficiently, and I'm excellent at taking direction, however I do not read music.

My influences are (including but not limited to) John Entwistle, Frank Zappa, Michael Nesmith, John Paul Jones, Paul McCartney, Pete Townshend, Mike Oldfield, Neil Diamond, Paul Simon and Todd Rundgren.

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

    I highly recommend Bill, not only is he a masterful and creative musician and writer, he is also highly intelligent and efficient in all he does. Music theory, writing, musicianship, production, arrangements and more, Bill covers all the bases. I look forward to our continued work together on future projects and recommend his talents highly...…..professional, efficient and creative!
