Chike Okaro on SoundBetter

Hello!! I am a bassist with several years of experience on Upright and Electric Bass. I have degrees in Music Performance from Baylor University and TCU so I have knowledge of theory and can read music. My ability to learn music is quick and I can provide synth bass sounds as well as vocals if needed!

I love being able to bring bass to any project that needs it. The styles I've worked in range from Classical, Jazz, Latin, CCM, R&B soul, Pop, etc.. I've played in many different venues and several studios in the DFW area. My tone is clean and I'm flexible in any situation. Whatever you need, I'll bring the low end to it!
