Hi , This is Les July. I am a bassist, electric & acoustic guitar, and trumpet player.
I have worked w/ everyone from k.d. Lang to Dr. Dre in the studio.Lately, been doing a LOT of remote recording with artists all over the world. Wav file , Protools , Paypal, simple.
I do a lot of sessions for a lot of people, some well known...some well on their way. I love that technology allows people to work in the comfort of their own space. I play many instruments on a pro level. Bass - I grew up w/ Marcus Miller, hung w/ Jaco and a disciple of Jamerson. Acoustic Guitar - Nancy Wilson from Heart, my main influence & longtime friend. Electric Guitar - Love Gilmour, Beck, Jimi, Prince & Nile Rodgers( who takes credit for 'discovering me). Trumpet - Miles... I am open to hear anything that needs live bass, guitar or trumpet. ANY style, ANY genre. I got an open mind, big ears and open to the possibilities of making magic with you.
My credits include
- Fender Basses
- Various Trumpets. The RIGHT sound for the song
