Derrick Whiteside

Nashville Bass Player

Derrick Whiteside on SoundBetter

From the vibrant music scene of Nashville, Tennessee, I am a dedicated full-time professional bass player with a passion for creating music that feels good. With 15 years of road and studio experience throughout my career, I have had the honor of touring with acclaimed artists such as Nikki Lane and Chapel Hart.

Originally from the blues-rich city of Chicago, I honed my craft playing in the local blues scene, developing a deep appreciation for the genre's soulful roots and expressive storytelling. This early influence in American roots music continues to shape my playing style and adds a depth to my musical approach. Whether it be country, rock, indie, or soul I strive to make whatever song I'm playing feel great and support the story being told in the music.
