Having worked with Taj Mahal, Derek Trucks, Eric Krasno, Lettuce, and the London Souls, Stu Mahan is a bass player’s bass player. With one of the deepest pockets around, he gives every song what it needs to both lay the foundation and brings life to every feel. In addition to his superb bass playing, he mixes songs from his studio in Maine.
Stu Mahan offers pristine bass lines and mixes for your songs. Building out a professional studio in his hometown of Damariscotta, Stu can give your songs that extra flavor and feel you’re looking for. He is known for his laid back, easy-to-work-with, and warm nature as well as his professional attitude and ‘quick ears’. Having toured extensively both nationally and internationally, Stu has refocused his attention to the studio after the pandemic. He has had the humble fortune of working with Taj, Mahal, Gov’t Mule, Derek Trucks, Lettuce, Eric Krasno, John Stirratt, North Mississippi All-Stars, Samantha Fish, Maurice Brown, and many other greats. For the gear nerds out there, his arsenal includes his go-to 1969 Precision, 1968 Hofner 500/1, Rickenbacker 4003, and a Telecaster bass all running through a 1967 Ampeg b15 captured by a Neumann u87 as well as a direct line.
