Bass Player for John Mayer, Lady Antebellum, Lana Del Rey, and many others.

I am an LA based session bass player. I've played on records by John Mayer, Gwen Stefani, Lady Antebellum, Lana Del Rey, Alanis Morissette, Robin Thicke, Idina Menzel, Vertical Horizon, Michael Buble', and many others. I have also played bass on many film scores and tv shows during my 18 years in the LA session scene.

I love working with artists and producers who are trying to bring their songs to life with live bass, whether it be simple pocket, McCartney-ish melodic, or Motown soul style playing. I focus on getting the right tone for a song's sonic palette and then create a bass line that supports the song and the artist's vision.

    It was pleasure to work with Sean. The problem about bass of my song was resolved by his tone and smooth play. I love the sound.
    I can't wait for working with him again.

    Working with Sean was a real pleasure! He is very friendly and professional. Now it is an honor for me to be able to hear in my song, the amazing sound of one of the best bass players out there.

    Sean is a phenomenal bass player, Amazing chops and an incredible, musical sense for what a track requires to shine.
    Really flexible, fast and great to work with, in fact the only hard part about working with Sean is choosing which one of his Killer takes to use.

    Can't recommend highly enough

    Sean is an incredible musician and bassist. His tone, playing, gear, and musicianship is world class. Sean has played on 5 different records for me and each time I have been blown away. He is a great guy and so easy to work with. Highly recommended!!
