3 ReviewsEndorse Jerry Meehan
Hiring Jerry to play on your song will be one of the best decisions you'll make! You'll get a well thought out bass line, played with pocket groove and feel, and recorded perfectly!
Oh....and he's fun to work with!
Jerry is a very accomplished Bassist/musician/writer/producer. A great guy to work with & instinctively knows what to play on any given song. He can play any style & has so much passion & creativity. Looking forward to working together again soon.
Jerry is the finest bass player I’ve had the pleasure to work with, not just for his musical ability but also his instinctive understanding of what an artist needs and how to make them feel. He is an exceptional arranger, producer and milieu instrumentalist, owns one of the finest recording studios in London, has worked with the greatest names in music. He is, in short, an absolute legend.
