Miles Mosley - bass | Tony Austin - drums
Miles Mosley is an Upright Bassist, Vocalist, Producer, Composer and Arranger. He received his classical training at the Colburn School of Music in Los Angeles, had numerous years of study with jazz bass legends John Clayton, Ray Brown, and Al McKibbon, and received his undergraduate degree in music at UCLA. Since then Mosley has greatly expanded his repertoire, mastering the bass and a vast array of instruments, deftly blending Jazz with Rock, Pop, Funk, and R&B. Mosley has successfully combined bow work, effects, and ‘in-your-face’ dexterity to give his instrument his own signature sound.
Miles has toured extensively across the globe with many artists including Lauryn Hill, Mos Def, and Herbie Hancock, as well as making appearances at the Grammy Awards telecast with the Gnarls Barkley Orchestra, at the Greek Theater with Jeff Beck, at the Staples Center with Rihanna, and headlined at The Alex Theatre with the Glendale Pops Orchestra. He accompanied singer Jonathan Davis of rock group Korn on a tour of Europe, where he pulled double duty as the opening performer with his band, and as Davis’ solo band bassist. He recorded three tracks on Kendrick Lamar’s album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’. He recently opened for NAS at Capcom’s Resident Evil 6 Launch party, and was also the recipient of Bass Gear Magazine’s Best Show Award for his performance at Dunlop’s and NAMM’s acclaimed Bass Bash.
