Gianluca Magalotti on SoundBetter

WHY HIRE ME? I religiously believe in the accurate craft of any track I tailor to my clients' songs. Contrarily to most session musicians and audio engineers who base their commitment on an industrial working approach, I invest all the time that a project really REQUIRES to be winning, regardless of the budget involved.

My name is Gianluca Magalotti and I am the low-end at the service of your art. I will provide you with groove-loaded bass and synth-bass tracks, according to the current highest music industry standards.

Class '18 Berklee College of Music honors graduate. Extended touring and recording experience in USA, EU and Asia, and currently working with emerging and national artists in Nashville, TN.
