Upright and Electric Bassist

Max Kraus on SoundBetter

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, 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. 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!

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.
