Karl Summers on SoundBetter

Experienced electric bassist that has performed live with Umphrey's McGee, Stanley Jordan, Big Gigantic, Robert Randolph, and virtually every genre of music.

I am a professional bassist who has performed with Umphrey's McGee, Robert Randolph, Stanley Jordan, Big Gigantic, and more. I graduated from Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music under legendary jazz composer David Baker and have experience performing nearly every music genre. I have the most experience with Rock and Funk, but have also performed live with Hip-Hop, Soul, Pop, EDM, Blues, Jazz, Metal, Country, and Jam Bands.

Along with bass synth and guitar playing, audio production is a devout passion of mine and have taken to mixing audio for the acts I am currently involved in. I have a keen attention to detail and approach audio mixing with a perfectionist mentality. My latest performance and production work can be heard on Envy Alo's latest live album entitled "Cruise Control."

Thank you for reading, and contact me with your inquiries!

    Envy Alo has quickly made a name for themselves in the thriving Colorado music scene. The band's brand of "boogaloo fusion" is built on an array of influences, ranging from old school organ funk to guitar-driven prog-rock. I had the pleasure of mixing, editing, producing, and performing bass on this energetic live album, released September 14, 2018.
