I'm a session bassist working in New York City. I have a home studio in Brooklyn Heights where I spend much of my time, producing music in just about any genre. I've toured the world playing and singing, but my favorite place is in a pair of headphones, creating and arranging.

I've had years of writing and arranging experience, and love building an entire track from an idea. I'm a multi-instrumentalist and have endorsements with Warwick, La Bella and Dave Smith Instruments. Whether it's writing horn parts for a 9 piece soul band, working out chord changes for a song, creating melodies or exploring harmony, I've always got my 'go to' methods. I love working on the musical side of things, but I also spend a lot of time behind the console mixing and editing audio.

Interview with Hayeser

How would you describe your style?
I'm a bass player and always approach a song from the groove/low end perspective. Rhythms to make you move.
Tell us about your studio setup.
For my sounds I use a Dave Smith Prophet '08 Polyphonic Analog synth, as well as a Korg MicroStation. I have a variety of acoustic/electric guitars and basses, Groove Tube & MXL Microphones, Focusrite Clarett 8pre thunderbolt interface with ISA mic preamps.
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I'm a fan of wide range of genres, so inspiration comes from all over the place. I like artists and producers who really make their own sound and get outside of the box, especially if they can still keep it accessible. Like Mark Ronson, RJD2, Adam Blackstone, Thundercat, Flying Lotus, Banks-Jamie Woon, Cornelius
