Jordan Scannella on SoundBetter

Low Frequency Love Unlimited! Bass player and producer with extensive touring credits including Gotye, Hamilton and Tortured Soul. Equally comfortable plucking a P-bass, picking a Hofner, thumping an upright or dialing a synth bass tone. Berklee graduated but New York City educated.

The integral role of a bass line and how it informs the comprehension of a song is what brought me to the instrument 28 years ago and it continues to enamor me with its awesome power and possibility. An early lover of rock and hip hop, jazz afforded me the opportunity to explore harmony and how bass can harness emotion. Playing Brazilian, Balkan and South African world music opened my eyes to the expansiveness of rhythm. Now, all groove music is where I like to reside; exploring tonal, spatial and creative paths to find a low end foundation to the music.

Collaboration is one of the pure joys of music. As someone who has been a sideman, music director and a band leader, I know the importance of communication from both sides of the microphone. I also know how to leave my ego at the door for the betterment of the music.

I look forward to finding the best low end energy for your music, taking your direction and being open and communicative so we can make the music happen. We’ll discuss bass selection, sound/tone, fx, rhythm and melodicism. We'll have fun and make great music!

    JorScan is one of the baddest bassist I've had the pleasure of playing in time with. His groove, sound, attention to detail, and energy are unparalleled. He's also one of the sweetest, most genuine people to boot. You'll definitely want to click the 'Contact' button above and send him a job invite!
