Let me add the soul and foundation that your track deserves!

I am a professional bassist, specializing in R&B, Soul, Neo-Soul, Funk, and Pop. I can also do pop-punk, indie and hard rock if needed I am working on my degree in Popular and commercial music. I have experience in mixing as well so the sound files I send you should be top quality.

My main bass is an MTD Kingston Heir 5 with a J/MM set up for flexibility. I also have an Ibanez BTB 405 that I can use as well.

I use logic to record and mix.
