Session Bass Player

Martin Motnik on SoundBetter

German-born studio and session bass guitarist, known for being a versatile electric and upright bass player, a pioneer in online music recording, and his work with Uli Jon Roth (The Scorpions) and German metal legends ACCEPT.

I've developed my own recording studio in Nashville, optimized for bass recording, after having worked for many years as a studio bass player all over the world. I've had the honor to record with many musicians, like the ones on the list below, and I would love to play for you too!
