Pinkbassman tracks bass for you! Bassist for Mark Slaughter (and occasionally for the band Slaughter!), as well as country star Ryan Weaver.

I am the Pinkbassman! I focus on session and touring bass for all styles of music. Hundreds of Nashville sessions with producers from all walks of life. From country to metal, Kolo to polka.
Contact me. Tell me about your project, and what you are looking for.
The more we communicate, the clearer we can be.
I am looking for the part the way you want it. Tell me how you want it and what you're thinking about. On your song, I'm part of your band (JUST for that song, I have had many ask!).
I can work with chord sheets, or written music. If you don't have those, no problem I can write my own! I can send WAV files in your choice of bitrate/sample rate. I am noted as being an 'expressive' player (my first instrument was a saxophone and I sometimes approach the bass this way as well.)
I spent a good amount of time playing live in all kinds of settings whether it is 10 or 100,000 people. I love what I do and am very thankful that I can be a part of so many musical experiences.
If you have a number of songs to play, message me and we can talk through what you are looking at and possible deals.
I have a youtube channel where I play around with all kinds of basses (just for fun of course!) and have over 1 million views just having a good time! Here is the link-- www.youtube.com/bassjaymi

    Jaymi hopped into the Visual Cliff bus to handle bass duties for the Between Two Kingdoms album. All I can say is working with him was a total pro situation. The turn time for his tracks for each song was incredible. The playing and ideas he brought to each song was equally great and he's a fantastic guy to deal with. Hire him...you won't regret it!
