sam powell • bass
Sam is continually excited, challenged and honored by the task of learning and reinterpreting the great basslines of Chuck Rainey, Walter Becker, Anthony Jackson and Marcus Miller as bassist for this awesome band.
Sam’s professional music career started on guitar, found its way to bass and piano, and then somewhere along the way his passion for wind and brass instruments developed. He showcases his ability on all these instruments and more via his Christian music ministry, which features original jazzy biblically-themed songs. Sam is particularly excited about his latest CD, “Go To Nineveh”.
