Simon Francis on SoundBetter

Acclaimed Bass player for Ellie Goulding, Kylie Minogue, Becky Hill, Gareth Dunlop and many more.

British musician predominantly known for his work on the bass guitar accompanying artists such as Ellie Goulding, Kylie Minogue, and Lee Rogers.

Equally at home laying down a deep, solid groove, or exploring kinetic & ethereal palettes.
I am known for a dynamic and expressive playing style paired with an innovative use of effects to conjure all manner of classic synth timbres, & textural tones out of the bass guitar.

Alongside extensive session and touring experience, I have provided programming, sound design, & live music production for a number of tours with artists including Sigrid, Ellie Goulding, Bastille, Mumford & Sons, and The Japanese House.
With deep knowledge & experience with various pieces of music hardware and DAWs such as Ableton Live, Pro Tools, & Logic Pro I am able deliver creative & interactive technology to integrate in to live performances of all kinds.

I am an enthusiastic fan of all music, and always excited to get involved with new musical projects - with a particular focus on tonality and part writing to best support the artist's/producer's vision, and to best support the core of the song through these creative choices.
