Jose Juvinao on SoundBetter

3 Grammy winner, over 3000 songs recorded (Electric bass, doublebass and baby bass), 15 grammy nominations. I have my own studio based in Medellín - Colombia.

Hello everyone, I'm Jose Juvinao, professional bass player. I studied music at the university of Antioquia, I have a Master's degree in Modern American Music (Cambridge MA), I'm professor at University of Antioquia and Eafit University in World Music, electric bass and doublebass.

I have played live concerts around Usa, Brazil, Colombia, Europe, México, Argentina, Canada, Ecuador, Venezuela, Panamá, Asia.

Do you need to have a new sound on your songs with your own style? I'm the right musician. I have wide experience recording different music genres. My goal is to provide my best as a musician to give your song the concept it needs.

I usually record one take to give you an idea of the bass line you need. There is no problem if you need some changes.
The bass recording will be send edited within 3 days, if you need it faster, let me know and I'll try my best.

    This is my second time working with Jose Juvinao and I’m blown away again by his incredible and diverse skill-set. He has a very strong sense of rhythm that clearly comes out in his playing. Jose delivered exactly what I was looking for and then some! What was very helpful was that he gave me examples for 4 and 5-string bass guitars initially so I could choose the type of electric bass. It was a pleasure working with Jose and look forward to working with him again in the future!

    HI Jose is the best bass player/mixer you will find

    he did the bass for 10 songs for my project

    some which are very difficult in tone/ precision and more importantly

    He made everything FIT well in my mix
    and provided an excellent timeline
    as well as communication
    I can safely rate him 10/10
