From Broadway's Jersey Boys and NYC studios to Capitol Records and the LA Opera, I have performed and recorded double bass and bass guitar with world class musicians.
I have been working with orchestras, film/game composers, jazz groups, and singer/songwriter bands for over ten years on both the East and West Coast. I have a solid playing experience and education (Master of Music from USC) that I hope to use to make your project sound amazing! I want to lay down solid bass parts for singer/songwriters and provide a real bass sound for film and game composers. I can play both arco (bowed) and pizzacato (plucked) and have worked on many film and game projects in LA (including the FX show "Baskets"). I play for you and your needs and am very quick to respond to direction. I am also happy to offer my musical opinion if you want it.
I look forward to working with you!

Always a great pleasure to work with Max ! Inspiration, accuracy, quality, ... What else ☕️ ? The double bass, played by him, brings A LOT to the songs. If you want to bring to your music things like: colour, personnality, shades, lights, mystery and shape (non-exhaustive list 😉), don't hesitate and ask Max !

Very happy working with Max ! I needed several recordings of double bass tracks. He did it perfectly 👌🏻 : 2000% pro, fast, and experienced. I encourage you all to 1) replace your bass lines by double bass lines 😉 and 2) ask Max to record the double bass. You'll be happy with the result !
Really precise player. Quality sound. Very quick turn around. Fast and clear communication. A true professional. Thank you Max!
Max is a superb and versatile musician, and very easy and friendly to work with. I hired him to play upright bass on my singer-songwriter project and his skill, ideas and enthusiasm were exactly what I needed. Top class!
Max Kraus recorded on my debut album and brought to the table excellent feel, groove, command of his instrument, and overall musicianship. I have worked with Max for the past two years, and each performance is something special.
