Chris Wood is a creative session bass player with an accurate ear and flair for versatility.

In the last few years he has played on Luke Friend’s EP ‘Commitments’, The Lovetown Allstars album which was number one on the UK Soul Chart, recorded an album with Yazz, and recorded bass for countless artists in development. Chris has played live with A-List bands since the tender age of 19 when he became Billy Ocean’s Musical Director, and is no stranger to quality.

“It makes such a difference having live bass on the tracks – it takes the music to a whole new level of sophistication” Tim Jones, Producer, Lovetown Music, 2014 #1 album on UK Soul Chart

Having worked in the studio environment most of his life, Chris understands the current needs of studios and artists of all levels. He is enjoyable and inspirational to work with, and communicates well with both artist and producer to ensure you get what you need. Please see below for the range of services Chris is now offering to suit a range of budgets and needs, including revisions after sessions at no extra cost to you, and introductory offers for you as a new client.

We hope you will enjoy listening to Chris’ showreel track, and consider booking Chris to lay down his magic on your clients’ music.

Remote Recording Service – £30ph

If you would like Chris to put some ideas down on a song for you, or you do not require Chris to be in the studio with your artists, try the remote services. Email over the track in question, and Chris can record his ideas for the song at his studio, and email you back the audio in the required format.
