Linus Fenton on SoundBetter

I am a professional bass guitar/double bass player. I've extensively toured Europe, North America and Australia playing with various artists. I can be heard on various recordings, recorded from world-class studios as well as from my home studio.

I can offer bespoke electric bass and upright bass tracks for your project, recorded from my studio.
My aim when playing other people's music is to serve the song without getting in the way. My bass lines are melodic, modest, considered and subtly complex.

Worked, toured and performed with artists including:
-Jade Bird
-Ward Thomas
-Hannah Grace
-Megan McKenna
-National Youth Jazz Orchestra
-Laura Fell

Performances at:
-The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
-The Late Show with Seth Meyers
-Hyde Park
-Newport Folk Festival
-Royal Albert Hall
-The Fillmore, San Francisco

I graduated from the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama with a First Class Honours degree in Jazz electric and double bass. Here, I was awarded the Ernest & Doris Haigh Memorial Prize for excellence, achievement and commitment to studies.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    This guy is wicked.
    He recorded some double bass for a project i'm involved with from his home studio and his recordings sounded fantastic. His high communication throughout was invaluable and is care for the music is palpable.
    A wonderful musician and top geezer.

    This year I’ve worked with Linus on several recordings from my forthcoming album. He recorded both electric and double bass remotely from his home studio. The time and care that he puts into the recording process, his attention to detail, creative energy, and enthusiasm are a joy. He is insightful and understanding, totally capable of and willing to honour one’s creative vision, whilst offering artistic perspective that can wholly augment the work in question. It’s an absolute pleasure to be able to work with Linus, he is a brilliant musician and artist, and I can’t recommend him highly enough

    Linus played double bass on my record and it was such a pleasure having him involved in the project. He came up with some amazing parts and was a great vibe to be in the studio with, and always happy to do extra takes and try out different ideas, not to mention how great his sound and playing is. A really lovely energy and just an all round brilliant musician and lovely guy. Will definitely be working with him again in the future, and would recommend without hesitation!

    I've used Linus for a few different projects and each time has been so easy. Great to work with someone with attention to quality like him and he's always open to suggestions and changes. Very reassuring to now know he's always there for future work!

    Linus played on my newest record and it was such a great experience. He was personable, friendly, and open to any and all suggestions. We worked out a few of the parts together over the internet but overall the parts he created even on his own exceeded my expectations. He has the ability to track amazing quality sound in his home studio. I would recommend him to anyone!
