Session Bass Player

Gabriele on SoundBetter

Hi there, here to provide pro session bass player services! I'm Gabriele Cannarozzo, a session bassist and synth bass player. I have played, recorded, and toured with many artists such as Francesco Renga, Biagio Antonacci, Marco Masini, Giusy Ferreri, Nek, Motta, Red Canzian, Cristina d'Avena and many others.

I've played in stadiums, arenas, and festivals all around the world for thousands of people, as well as TV shows.

I believe that the bass part is incredibly important. I will tailor the bass part or synth bass part of the project to make the bass sit in the mix and follow the song's atmosphere. I can create a part from ex novo or from your guide or read from the music sheet you provide.

The record will take place in my studio with the best quality recording and mixing gears.
