Silas Maitland

Bassist (location/remote)

Silas Maitland on SoundBetter

Session bassist with over 30 year professional playing experience specialising in playing what's right for your songs with tone and feel. Classic and contemporary. Electric and upright bass. Old skool roots, soul, classic rock, blues and Pop etc.

We can discuss your music and get a feel for the vibe you're looking for. I'll record your bass line and send it back. We can then do any revisions re tone and style. I'll then send you raw di and amped tracks (for you to blend and shape) and a processed blend that you can just drop straight into your project.
I pride myself in doing what's right for the song and it's important to me that you get what you need for your track. I'll keep working until you're happy.
For those in a hurry i can (if available) turn a track around in a couple of hours. Usual turnaround is a day.
I only use top quality instruments and equipment
