Bass Tracks Online
Derek Frank is one of the most in-demand bass players on the Los Angeles music scene today. He is currently serving as touring bass player with both Gwen Stefani & Shania Twain, and in past years he has found himself touring with artists/bands such as Shakira, Air Supply, Daniel Powter, Victoria Justice, Dancing With The Stars, Aly & AJ, Mindi Abair & The Boneshakers, Brian Auger's Oblivion Express, Jeff Golub, David Pack, and others. In the studio, he has recorded bass tracks for both independent and major-label artists/bands across a vast cross-section of musical genres... see his DISCOGRAPHY for a partial list. Prior to moving to Los Angeles, he studied music at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Interlochen, Michigan, and at the University of Miami.
Currently Derek splits his time between touring and studio work, and frequently travels with a mobile recording rig so that he can maintain his ever-growing roster of studio clients.
Bass Tracks Online was created to offer songwriters, composers, producers, bands, engineers, and other music professionals a simple and affordable way to add solid, tasty, REAL bass tracks to their songs.
These days, project studios are easy to put together, and more and more people are getting into the art of home recording. However, not everyone has the means to get the right bass parts on their projects. Perhaps you're a multi-instrumentalist, but your bass skills are too limited for the song you are currently working on... or maybe you don't personally know any bass players worthy of your music... or it might be that you simply want to get great bass tracks on your project without leaving the confines of your comfy studio, and you don't feel like hiring someone to come to you, paying their cartage, etc.
In any case, Bass Tracks Online provides the perfect solution to these woes of bass‑deprived home recording. No matter where in the world you may be, you can now hire an experienced, professional studio bass player to play on your songs... online.

Prices vary from project to project, depending on what is needed. In most cases, once the initial contact form is filled out, we'll discuss via email or phone exactly what your needs are for the project in question. The ultimate goal here is your satisfaction — so, of course, pricing does include multiple takes, plus a couple revisions/ changes/ fixes within reason.
The process generally goes a lot smoother if you can be very specific about what you want (i.e. "I want this to be really simple", "Put a few fills in on this section", "Think James Jamerson on this one", etc.). But please do keep in mind, this is an experienced professional bass player you're hiring, with solid musical instincts.
