Grammy winner. Deep pocket bass,drums 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.

My goal is always to under promise and over deliver creative ! I am an electric bass player based in Southern CA, and for many years I have been asked to play and/or structured bass lines for many, many artists in varying styles. I am very sensitive to the vibe of the music and I generally let the song tell me what to play !
