STUART HAMM

Through his innovative work as a solo artist and his contributions as a sideman to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, Stuart Hamm has firmly established himself as one of the most influential electric bassists of the past half-century. Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionized by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm helped to reshape the contemporary concept of the bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument with the utilization of polyphonic, two-handed tapping, slapping and popping techniques, chords, and harmonics.

NORM STOCKTON:

Norm Stockton travels extensively throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. He has been profiled in Bass Player magazine and is recognized by many as one of today’s premier bassists. From 2006 to 2012 he was the touring and recording bassist with chart-topping worship artist (and former Steve Perry guitarist) Lincoln Brewster. Norm has also performed or recorded with a number of Grammy-winning artists. As a solo artist, he has released two instrumental jazz projects that have garnered widespread global acclaim.

JAYME LEWIS:

Jayme Lewis is a bassist, author, educator, YouTuber… and a bunch of other things that no longer fit on his business card. When he’s not on the road or in the studio Jayme can be found at TheBassist.net and The Bassist Podcast.

KAI KUROSAWA:

Kai Kurosawa picked up the electric bass at the age of fifteen. Today his primary axe is Kūbo (aka the Aircraft Carrier); a custom 15-string instrument which he co-developed with renowned luthiers Michael & Daniel Tobias (MTD). Kai self-taught and also self-created fresh new cutting edge musical techniques for this unique instrument.

JOHNNIE GILMORE:

When he first picked up the electric bass, Johnnie Gilmore knew he had found his calling. Music had always been a passion for him, starting with after-school piano lessons in second grade, but at that point — a few months shy of his fifteenth birthday — it became his life’s work. During his college years at Wesleyan University, he developed a unique voice as a solo artist and songwriter in his own right, building his repertoire over thousands of hours as a street performer in his hometown of Boston.

ARIANE CAP:

Austrian Ariane Cap is a multi instrumentalist, educator, author, blogger and composer. An eclectic and versatile bassist, she has covered many styles, from Rock (Keith Olsen/Fleetwood Mac), Jazz (Daline Jones, Montclair Women’s Big Band) to Folk and Flamenco (Muriel Anderson), to classical music (The Mozart Band), and Top 40 (Brian Cline Band), Latin Disco (Generation Esmeralda) to Punk Rock (The Sippy Cups) and Cirque du Soleil. As a leader, Ariane has teamed up with star Jazz bassoonist Paul Hanson to create the critically acclaimed duo ‘OoN’.

JOSH COHEN:

Josh Cohen is a multi-award winning six-string electric bassist, composer, session musician, and music educator based out of Madison, WI who travels frequently throughout North America performing and teaching clinics (e.g. Bass Boot Camp 2016/2019, Gruv Gear’s Clinic Series at Steve’s Music Toronto, Bass Break Live 2017 etc). His solo electric bass compositions/arrangements, which use extended techniques to create the sound of an entire band.
