Paul Sounder on SoundBetter

It's always better with a bass so let's give your song the perfect groove! Over 25 years of experience playing live and recording with diverse artists including Grammy winner Fantastic Negrito, renaissance woman Rachel Lark, flamenco virtuoso Jason McGuire "El Rubio", prolific songwriter Heather Normandale, and experimental rock group Antioquia.

My Alabama roots and San Francisco Bay Area HQ have shown me many sides of music. Over the years I've become steeped in Blues, R&B, Rock, Funk, Jazz, Cumbia, and many styles of music from around the world. Touring the U.S. and the world with diverse artists such as three-time Grammy winning Fantastic Negrito and experimental rock group Antioquia has given me the communication skills to talk through and connect in almost any situation. My classical pianist Mom put me in piano lessons early on which gave me a great foundation to understand music theory and chord structure while my drummer Dad taught me the nuances of rhythm and playing bass in the pocket.
I love communicating with musicians, songwriters, and producers to learn about their vision and bringing it to fruition. If you hire me I will make sure my playing and ideas serve the your song and give you the foundation you're listening for.
