A studio ready bass player who will put the song first - it's your music and I will lay down the tracks to make it shine. With gigging and recording experience in a multitude of styles and experience on both electric and upright, I will be a great addition to any group.
A very versatile bass player currently gigging with various bands around NYC. I have experience playing in all styles including Jazz, Latin, Hip Hop, Funk, Rock, Metal, Country, Folk, and more! A little bit of a perfectionist on my instrument I am willing to put in the time to make sure everything sounds right.
Here is a recent recording in a country project
