Beth McPherson

Born:

Berklee College of Music Class of 2021, dual major in Bass Performance and Jazz Composition I have been playing both electric and upright bass for 13 years and have experience playing all styles of music. My specialties include metal, jazz, funk, R&B/soul, progressive/fusion (rock, jazz, funk), Latin/Brazilian, and world music (Mediterranean, Arabic, Circus). I also have experience playing pop, rock, country, and extensive musical theater pit orchestra experience. One of my strengths is sight reading and the ability to create bass lines that are melodic while still maintaining the foundational role of the bass. I have experience touring (Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors, The Witching Hour tour, October 2019) and played in the backing band for Youtube-famous comedian Chris Fleming at his Boston stand-up comedy show in 2018 at the Wilbur Theater.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
