Myles Weeks on SoundBetter

Hi! I'm Myles Weeks. I craft baselines with great care and attention to detail, all while maintaining big picture phrasing and musical momentum for whatever song or project I'm working on. I currently tour and record with the James Hunter Six.

I have a formal education in music (LSU) as well as years of experience touring and performing around New Orleans. I specialize in working with singer songwriters and love great storytelling. Also, thanks to my background in classical music, I'm keen to put a bow on the bass for a lyrical approach when supportive to the track.

I've worked with: The James Hunter Six, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Eric Lindell, Andrew Duhon, Seth Walker, Luke Winslow King, and many others.

Check out the demo track!
I am very easy to work with and not happy unless the artist is happy.
Reach out and say hello! I'd love to hear what you are working on.

    If you’re looking for an upright bass player, stop here and hire Myles. He’s extremely easy to work with, brought plenty of great ideas to my songs, and plays masterfully. Great guy and brilliant musician.

    Myles Weeks is a bass playing pro. Period. His ear is unbelievable and his quickness to learn and His attention to nuance details and tone have always amazed me. Myles is relentless when it come to creating the right bass line with the right tone. On top of being a master in the studio, Myles brings a strong energy and sound to every live performance. When I think of amazing bass players I know, Myles Weeks is the first name that comes to mind.
