Band to Join.


Hello reader! My name is Paul Brackens and I have been studying music for 27 years. I started gigging with steady working professional bands at 17 years old. I play ALL styles/genres of music and am completely open minded. I am a very quick learner. I am proficient at improvisation. I can play anything from simple powerful hypnotic bass lines, to odd meter, to intricate compositions, to thoughtful/soulful bass solos. Looking to work as much as possible, down to tour, down for out of town gigs, down for studio work. Looking for professional, hard working, talented, and established musicians/bands to work with or any driven and open-minded musicians... I have played in many types of bands, I've done tons of studio work and played 1000+ clubs, weddings, festivals, private events, with both original and cover bands. I have been a music director for several bands. I can read/write charts. I am a resident producer at Lotown Studios in St. Louis, MO. I have transportation. You can find me on YT, FB, and IG as "Paul Bass Brackens" or "Paul Brackens." Thanks for your interests and I look forward to hearing from you!
