In Bass By Jackson Hill


Hello! I am a professional bass player with over 15 years of experience in the studio and on stage. I have toured North America, Europe, Australia, and China, and recorded with various artists, some of which include Son Lux, Rafiq Bhatia, Glass Elephant, and TUTU.

I am a conservatory-trained bass player (Oberlin Conservatory of Music) and have an incredibly diverse background in music.

I value musicality and taste above all else and I’m passionate about creating bass lines that elevate the overall feeling and sound of a given track. I am always eager to offer my ideas and insights but I’m equally comfortable taking your specific instructions about exactly what to play.

My instruments:
‘82 Fender Jazz Bass
‘98 Fender Precision Bass
'19 Fender Fretless Bass
Moog Sub Phatty synthesizer
1860’s German upright bass

Signal chain:
Aguilar Tone Hammer preamp
Apogee Duet 2 audio interface
Waves, Soundtoys, Kush Audio, Valhalla, Wavesfactory, plug-ins to enhance sound quality

Pedals and effects:
Zvex Basstortion
Zvex Wooly Mammoth
EHX Big Muff Bass
Moogerfooger Low pass filter
Boss OC2 Octaver
Strymon El Capistan
EHX Holy Grail
Cali76 Bass compressor
And more...

I am happy to offer 3 distinct bass lines per track and 2 revisions per track.

I am comfortable reading music or learning by ear.
