I’ve been a drummer since I was seven, but I am intoxicated by the way bass lets me blend rhythm and harmony. Bassically, I’m a sucker for low frequencies.
In 2014, I played bass on my boarding-school classmate Madi Das’s Bhakti Without Borders; a year later, it was nominated for a Grammy in the Best New Age category.
Occasionally, I have returned to spiritual music in the Gaudiya-Vaishnav tradition I know best, accompanying devotional singers such as Jai Uttal, Karnamrita, the Mayapuris, Donna De Lory, David Estes, Wah, and another boarding-school buddy, Gaura Vani, on bass or percussion.
I had a blast playing on this track from the Mayapuris’ 2019 album Nine Islands.
This set of bootlegs from a 2010 Australian kirtan tour with the Mayapuris and Gaura Vani continues to be one of the most popular playlists on my Soundcloud page.
Got a gig you think I’d dig? Hit me up!
