Touring bassist and background vocalist, currently on tour with Kenny Chesney. I would love to work with you on your next project!

Hey there! I am an Austin-based professional touring and studio bass player and background vocalist. I've been playing bass for over 20 years and currently have the great pleasure of touring with Kenny Chesney. Being from Austin, TX and living in Nashville for a 5 years stint, I've been able to have such a diverse musical experience, playing and recording with different artists in all types of genres: Americana, folk, R&B, country, bluegrass, funk, pop, rock, blues, etc. I pride myself on having deep pockets, a solid groove and the ability to come up with melodic basslines. I'm a firm believer in playing for the song.

I would love to talk with you about what you're looking for and see if we can make some magic happen on your next project. Your satisfaction is my number one priority and my goal is to deliver something to you that you're truly happy with. That also means that if for some reason I don't feel that I'm the right player your project, I'll say so rather than just take the work. Transparency and honesty is key. This project is your baby and I want you to love it!

  2. Review by Israel Malek

    As always... Killer! Thank you again Harmoni:)

  3. Review by Michael Costelloe

    Harmoni created another beautiful bass track on a song where the verses used non-diatonic, extended chords. She was also able to work in some delicious motifs in the higher registers of the bass that perfectly fit the sound and feel of the track. She is truly a versatile bass player who can work with different genres and styles.

    It was a real pleasure working with Harmoni. She's a fabulous bass player who got the feel of the song immediately. Exactly what I was looking for. Excellent communication and would love to work with again. Would highly recommend 👍

  6. Review by Michael Costelloe

    Harmoni takes a very thoughtful approach to composing a bass line. Her playing not only supplies the essential bottom-end for a song, but also keeps things interesting without conflicting in any way with the other instruments. She's also a pleasure to work with and extremely reliable.

  7. Review by David Guinn

    This is my 2nd time working with Harmoni, she is a real professional and a true pleasure to work with. Everyone knows she is a great bass player, but she also has a producers ear. I will return.

  11. Review by Stefano Intelisano

    Harmoni is a passionate and competent musician, all heart and soul, that's going to craft that perfect "meat and potatoes" part that the song calls for.

    by Chris Peterson

    Harmoni has an incredible musicality. She deftly reflects the mood and dynamics of any song with a fluid intuition. She also carefully and patiently listens to and checks in with the producer to ensure she is accurately reflecting what is sought for a song. Harmoni has recorded electric bass, lead vocals, and harmony vocals for several of my projects, and in addition to her being friendly and easy to work with, the songs have always been greatly enhanced with her contributions.

    by Cole Kercheval

    Harmoni was a pleasure to work with on my project. What you want from a remote collaborator is; talent, an ear for production, good communication, and timeliness. She totally checked the box on all attributes. I gave her some ideas and she confirmed that they aligned with what she would have done for the song. Since I’m not a bass player, getting her guidance on the initial production direction for bass tone and style was very helpful. She gave me a performance that I loved, turned it around quickly, and was an effective communicator throughout. She made the song move! Thank you Harmoni!
