My name is Jacob Miranda, aka (Cubby), Professional Bass Player/Multi-instrumentalist, and Music Producer out of San Diego. As a freelance artist, I am involved in many projects, they come and they go. I chose this path as to build my networks, and play a variety of styles. It is hard for me to commit to one band as many bandleaders are contacting me weekly for my schedule. The ideal employer understands the demand to make a living in San Diego and always has second and even third call musicians. I also deal with these issues when I hire out my own musicians. That is the nature of the beast these days.
As much as I love playing bass, and making music, I also enjoy business. This means managing. If I had the time I would do both, however my schedule is only so flex. Just know, when you hire me, you are hiring more than a musician, you are hiring the total package OCD machine. I pride myself on not wasting time, and bringing quality to any SERIOUS project.
My featured music is off my self produced album, Enlightened Intentions ( find it in iTunes). I curated the whole album, and perform it live with my own band and as a solo set. Catch me out! Reach out to me, network with me.
