**12/2015 UPDATE - I'm currently touring seasonally with Brother Dege (music featured on Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" soundtrack, Discovery Channel and National Geographic Channel). I'm available for scheduling in the off months.**

 

Welcome! My name is Kent Beatty. I am a musician from Louisiana, USA. From around the age of 5, I was attempting harmonica and soon learned the viola. That eventually led me to the bass guitar. Over the years, I've played bass in several bands and in several countries. I've been known for original solo compositions as well as "extreme" bass techniques. All of that takes a backseat to providing the tight rhythm section a professional band requires. My tour schedule has been solid for the last 6 years - around 150 shows per year. During that time, I was the bassist for Hamilton Loomis, performed solo bass events, clinics, and shows with my own bands. Recently, I've taken time off from the road to focus on my music and other priorities. I've been hired since then in a variety of situations, including subbing in a modern country band at House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC - with a few days' notice. Now I am booking for 2014 and available for genres ranging from metal, rock, and pop, to funk, R&B, and country. Traveling frequently has taught me to be prepared. I have gear available in other countries, my passport is ready, and I travel light.

 

On or off the road, I am available for recording sessions. If your project needs bass recorded - electric, fretted, fretless, or upright - contact me here or via e-mail to discuss options. If the session is not along the Gulf Coast USA, I can remotely upload 24-bit audio to you.

 

I also have a love for animals, technology, and photography, so you may see bits of my personal side from time to time. Keep in touch with me through your favorite social media app, and thank you for visiting KentBeatty.com!
