Sam D'Agostino on SoundBetter

Bassist, post-producer, and podcast editor and mixer. Have toured and performed with groups including David Wax Museum, Kingsley Flood, and bluegrass bands around the Mid-Atlantic. I turn around projects quickly and professionally, and am also available for recording projects in the DC area.

I work quickly and diligently to get parts locked down and sounding just like you hear them in your head, and love iterating and creating with other musicians.

I’ve been playing music since I was 8, and gigging and recording since I was 13. My philosophy is to search for the most musical part possible, and use that part to support the meaning of the song. Anyone here can write an interesting bassline, but I go the extra mile to write emotion and feeling into each note.

In addition to bass, I’m a session and mix engineer. I’ve recorded
