Phone #- (562) 413-7408 (I can do both text or call)

I’m a multi-genre bassist that specializes in Jazz and Jazz Fusion. Other genres i’m proficient in are Blues, Funk, R&B, Motown, Pop, Hip-Hop/Rap and Rock/Metal. I’ve been playing both upright and electric bass for 7 years and have studied classical and Jazz theory during that time. I’m currently only doing freelance work so I will be available for any bands or musicians seeking bassists full time.

If there is anyone interested I do vocals as well. I only however do Rock and Metal when it comes to vocals. I’ve been singing for 3 years, i’m a baritone and I can sing in falsetto.
