Session Bassist(el. + upright)

Bass by Rinne on SoundBetter

My recording credits include Jack White, Alicia Keys, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Milsap, Rayland Baxter, The Nashville Symphony, Rodney Crowell, Andrew Combs, Erin Rae, Chester Thompson, Kelsey Waldon, Caroline Spence, and Tom Hiddleston(yes Loki) among many others. I'm always involved in country music but have recorded across many different genres.

I've been in Nashville for 15 years and have spent many of those performing and recording behind some of the best artists, songwriters, and producers in the industry. I find a lot of people reach out to me when they need that extra punch in the low end whether it's the composition of the bass line, the tone, or just that extra something special that programming and samples can't provide. Hit Me Up :)

I run pro tools, Apollo x6 interface, and have a variety of outboard gear and plugins. Lot's of vintage basses and great microphones for upright tracks. I'll always send you clean + dirty tracks for electric bass, and a top + bottom mic for upright tracks. I've got a diverse array of basses and I usually decide on which instrument to play after I hear a song as to best fit the vibe of the music. If you have something specific in mind, I'm happy to accommodate.
