Kristofer ( Kris)

Session Bassist, Professional

Kristofer ( Kris) on SoundBetter

I'm a young professional bassist, Currently study music in specific Jazz. However, I play everything from the hardest swinging Count Basie charts to the funkiest stuff imaginable. I can play and do play, 4 string basses fretted and fret-less, along with a six string fret-less bass, and double bass. I'm looking to try out something new and creative.

I'm 22, a music major studying jazz performance. I'm known for being a fret-less bassist around my area. I've recorded multiple times with the local junior college HCC, my last project Cool Feat played for the city on multiple occasions; along with being the staff bassist for one of our Baptist churches in the area. I also have an extensive live performance history as well, as to say I'm pretty comfortable on stage or in the studio. I can read three different clefs of music proficiently, along with an amazing ear. I'm looking to play in the studio, on the road, or for a specific event (festivals, clinics, weddings, cruises). i am also willing to travel just about anywhere to play, that being said I like to keep things done and to the best of my ability; I won't waste your time, so please don't waste mine kind of thing. That being said, I'm extremely relaxed and flexible and always open to new ideas or critiques. Like I said I'm a young Professional bassist just looking to soak up any knowledge or musical en devours possible. Being a Fret-less bass player I will say I specialize in Jazz and R&B (Soul/ Gospel). But switch to one of my fretted basses and I become the funkiest in the pocket bassists, or so I've been told.
