Shaun Johannes

Session Bassist

Shaun Johannes on SoundBetter

I've been a session musician for nearly two decades and have toured extensively as a sideman for artists and touring theatre shows! My primary instruments are Electric Basses (Fretted/Fretless) & Upright Bass but also am an accomplished keyboardist, music composer and music arranger. Making your music great is all I really want to get done...WELL!

What I offer is years of experience playing varying genres ranging from traditional South African to Jazz, R&B/Soul and Pop.
I own some awesome basses and recording equipment and have recorded many tracks and albums for nearly twenty years! This doesn't mean that I'm amazing at everything but at the very least I will play what your music needs and I will provide you with the best audio recording quality with clinical accuracy but with 110% guts/heart!
I won't rest until you get the magic you're looking for whether I'm performing, composing, arranging or producing your music!
