Grammy winner. Deep pocket bass and keys. The bass part often determines the overall feel and vibe of a song, and a human performing that part adds something that a sample often can't quite get to. I have the experience and skill set to take your song and project to the next level. You owe it to yourself and your music to bring the very best.

I am very sensitive to the feel of the music and I generally let the song tell me what to play whether it's a lot of notes or just whole notes. Tone/feel/vibe. I love it.

Your piece of music needs some low end to make it feel grounded and supported. Maybe that means a 70's funky bass hook, maybe a wall of synthetic fuzz or a bowed double bass. I specialize in popular bass playing and programming and can help you choose the right kind of lower frequency styling for your track or song.

I approach the electric bass from two polar opposites - one of finding the perfect part for a given song, and the other destroying the bass role completely and trying different approaches with pedals, effects, sonic textures, and melody.
