// BASS : SESSIONS : TEACHING
I’m Jack Stevens, a bass player and band-leader from north London. My primary instrument is the electric bass guitar (both 4 and 5 string), but I also dabble in synth-bass (Moog Sub 37). Songwriting and production are two areas of which I’ve been concentrating on more recently. I am a keen 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.
I was fortunate enough to play on 8 tracks on the new Simply Red album , Big Love. I have been working with Mick Hucknall for a couple of years, both live and in the studio, so this was a great honour for me. Other recent projects include: actress/singer-songwriter Heather Peace’s album The Thin Line and subsequent tour; bass guitar on Nicole Bernegger’s latest album (winner of Switzerland’s The Voice), Small Town. Check out the Discography and Music pages of this site for audio links etc.
Some of my previous recording/performance work has been with the following: Craig David, Andy Wright (producer), Olly Murs, The Arts Club (Mayfair) House Band, Frankmusik, Simon Webbe (Blue), Natasha Hamilton (Atomic Kitten), Ray Quinn, James Lewis (producer), Nate James, Kele Le Roc, Jon Allen, Pete Watson (Hurts, Kylie, Natasha Bedingfield, Vanessa Mae, Lilly Allen), Craig Connet (Joss Stone, The Christians, Sandi Thom, Tim Daniels), Marcus Bonfanti , James Morrison (Trumpeter/Arranger), The Wigan Jazz Club Big Band, High Brass.
