// BASS : SESSIONS : TEACHING
I’m Jack Stevens, a bass player and band-leader from London. My primary instrument is the electric bass guitar (both 4 & 5 string),I am strong backing vocalist and really enjoy singing some falsetto harmonies when required.
I took up the bass guitar in my early teens and, in 2002, I moved up to the northwest of England to study a music degree at Sir Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. I was fortunate enough to start working regularly as a professional musician whilst living in the city. I moved back to London in 2008 and have been having a ball ever since.
Recently, I have been lucky enough to record the bass for SuRie's 2018 GB Eurovision entry as well as dep with 80s legend, Paul Young. I was fortunate enough to play on 8 tracks on the last Simply Red album , Big Love. I worked with Mick Hucknall for a number of years, both live and in the studio, so this was a great honour for me. Other notable projects include: Nell Bryden's album, Bloom; actress/singer-songwriter Heather Peace’s album The Thin Line and subsequent tour; bass guitar on Nicole Bernegger’s last album (winner of Switzerland’s The Voice), Small Town. Check out the Discography and Music pages of this site for audio links etc.
