    I barely gave Trevor any direction and he turned around a great bass line for us. Would definitely work with him again!

    Trevor has been recording bass for my upcoming record and I couldn’t be happier with the result- he delivers the tracks always with a quick turnaround and with at least 2 different options of files (different bass line, tone, plugins). He takes the time to listen to the music and play accordingly to the style and he just nails it! I highly recommend him for any recording/ producing job- his professionalism and musicianship are top tier.

    Reliably musical and rocking bass from this dude always with attention to detail. He nailed the pre-existing parts and brought just the right sort of energy and improvisational elements where the song needed it.

    This song did not have an easy bass part but Trevor nailed it! I’m even working with a producer who commented on the high quality of the recordings themselves. Looking forward to the next one thank you Trevor!

    I needed a rocking bass line with improvisational elements while following difficult rhythmic patterns. Trevor killed it above and beyond my expectations! I’m going to start another job with him right now!
