Phil Spalding on SoundBetter

I've been a professional bassist for 45 years and I played on The Lion King recordings by Elton John as well as other staple ‘hits’ one can hear on the radio everyday. I have credits on over 120 hit singles. My specialisation is doing a song in one take having heard the song only 2 or 3 times. I can do a 10 track album in a day.

I've been a professional bassist for 45 years and have played on recordings by Elton john, Seal, Robbie Williams, Joe Cocker, Mick Jagger, OMD, Chris de Burgh, Alison Moyet, Terence Trent, D'Arby, Billy Preston, Ray Charles, Chaka Khan, Kylie Minogue, Mike Oldfield, Right Said Fred and many, many more. I have credits on over 120 hit singles.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
