BASS PLAYING by BYRON HOUSE, UPRIGHT & ELECTRIC for $160
I am a Grammy-nominated bassist who loves playing just about any kind of music. I've been playing bass for over 40 years and have professional credits in a wide array of styles.
My recording credits include Robert Plant (Band Of Joy), Chris Cornell, Emmylou Harris, Solomon Burke, Buddy & Julie Miller, Linda Ronstadt, Dixie Chicks, Jewel, John Scofield, Dan Tyminski, Jamey Johnson, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Jorma Kaukonen, Vince Gill, Cerys Matthews, Jerry Douglas, Over The Rhine, Dave Perkins, Paul Brady, Rodney Crowell, Nickel Creek, Sarah Jarosz, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Johnny Cash & June Carter, Jimmy Martin, Sam Bush, Radney Foster, Ricky Skaggs, Chris Thile, Jim Lauderdale, Mark O'Connor, John Carter Cash, Amy Grant, Brandon Heath, Laura Story, Phil Madeira, Neal Morse, Natalie Macmaster, Foster & Lloyd, Benoit/Freeman, Bobby Bare, David Wilcox, Michael Bolton and Travis Tritt.
(fun fact: I played banjo on The Greatest Showman film soundtrack, on the song "From Now On".)
I have an abundant collection of great-sounding electric and upright basses. I lay down deep grooves and creative parts to complement your songs.
I record them using a Sarno Music Solutions preamp as my DI, a UA Apollo interface, and ProTools 12.8.2 as my DAW. I also have a nice mic selection for my Upright bass and for micing my bass cab when appropriate.
4- & 5-string Electric basses include: vintage Fender Ps & Js (round or flatwound strings, fretted and fretless), Epiphone Jack Casady Signature hollowbody, Hofner, Warrior Custom Isabella, F-Bass BN-5, Parker Fly, Godin fretless.
My Upright bass is ca. 1880 Czech flatback, carved top & sides, laminated back. I play with the bow (arco) as well as with my fingers (pizzicato).
I am more than happy to take instruction/direction on style, part, sound, or anything that will help ensure your complete satisfaction! I will provide 2 revisions and/or alternate takes after initial pass.
Thanks for your consideration... I look forward to hearing from you!
