Samuel Smith

Upright and Electric Bassist

Samuel Smith on SoundBetter

I have played upright bass for 12 years and electric bass for 5 years. I plan to bring these experiences to your song/album or gig. I have played mostly jazz, pop, r&b, and rock, but can bring my expertise to any situation. I am based in Boston, but will travel if the circumstances permit.
