Mike Hall is a new name in the solo bass guitar world

Because it is generally considered as the backbone of a song’s rhythm section and is rarely included in the front line, the bass guitar is a somewhat overlooked instrument.

Mike Hall, a bass guitarist, is committed to changing that and rethinking how modern audiences perceive the instrument. Over the previous year, the American musician has viewed the bass as far more than just a supporting role in any given composition.

Instead, via a playing style that has captivated audiences worldwide, he has converted the bass guitar into a worthy solo instrument.

Hall began his musical career at an early age, performing on the cello in elementary school before switching to upright bass at the request of his orchestra teacher.

In college, he discovered the thrill of making music on his terms. He was able to study the works of four influential bassists: Metallica’s Cliff Burton, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Sly and the Family Stone’s Larry Graham, and Victor Wooten.

These four performers motivated him to take a fresh look at the bass guitar, which has helped him hone his skills as a real virtuoso.

Hall made his debut in the music industry in 2010 with his Pop/Rock band, Running Late.

In the band, he established himself as one of the most interesting bassists to watch in the tristate music scene, touring with Third Eye Blind, Blues Traveler, Collective Soul, MGMT, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Blondie, and Lifehouse, among others. However, it wasn’t until his debut EP, The Next Step, earlier this year that Hall became a household name.

His unique style of bass playing, which combines two-handed tapping, flamenco strumming, slapping, and interwoven harmonics, has quickly established him as one of the most prominent solo bass players in the world.
