Josh Valeo

Session/Performing Bass Player

Josh Valeo on SoundBetter

Orange County, Bass player available for remote recording or local performances.

I hail from Orange County, CA. I've been a session and performing bassist for about 20 years. I'm currently performing public and private events throughout Southern California with the Brandon Wildish Band and Mothership. I've played bass for 20+ years professionally alongside bands such as Hope Departed, Ever The Mystic, Modjeska, and many more.

I enjoy playing music. It's a great passion of mine. I'm less incentivized through money, although it doesn't hurt. I'm more drawn in through artists, musicians, or producers that have a great product, song, sound, or the like, that are as passionate! I love to nurture a song and support a band. As a bass player, that's my job... right?

Interview with Josh Valeo

  1. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  2. A: I'd like to think that I bring what is necessary to a song. If it's asked upon me, I'll overplay, but that rarely caters to the song.

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: Most commonly, I play in performance acts.

  5. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  6. A: Both. If it sounds good, then good is what it is.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: My Lakland PJ, a tuner, a Boss OC-2, and an Amp & Cab.
