Hi there! I'm Manuel, but I go by Manny. I'm a bass player based in the Greater Los Angeles and have been playing bass professionally for 5 years but have playing bass guitar for 12 years, overall. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona in 2018 with a B.A. in Music Industry Studies. I'm very versatile in my bass playing but I normally get hired to play for local artists/groups in R&B, Hip Hop, Soul, Jazz, Funk, Worship music (Gospel, alternative christian rock, etc.), Pop (Top 40s, Latin, Electronic, Indie, Experimental, Alternative Rock, Ska, etc.).

I specialize in both 4 and 6 string bass guitar. I thoroughly enjoy playing and writing music for my personal and collaborative side projects, in a groovy, funky, jazzy, Hip Hop, Soulful, and progressive mixed style, using odd time signatures.

My greatest influences of all time (in alphabetical order):
Anthony Crawford, Baba Elefante, Billy Sheehan, Cachaíto (Buena Vista Social Club), Daric Bennett, Derrick Hodge, Eric Wilson(Sublime), Flea(RHCP), James Jamerson, Larry Graham, Marcus Miller, Mark Hoppus (blink-182), Nathan East, Paul Bender(Hiatus Kaiyote) Reggie Parker, Rich Brown, Robert Bubby Lewis, Ron Carter, Sharay Reed, Thundercat, and Victor Wooten.
