    With five solo albums under his belt, Jonathan Moody is taking a different approach to the term "solo bass." Focusing on through-composed songs and pieces that skirt the line between technical prowess and melodic depth, Moody approaches the instrument more as a folk artist over a jazz soloist. Using a number of effects (and the occasional drummer), Moody is an instrumental storyteller, leading the audience on a roller coaster (sometimes literally, as "Mean Streak" is an ode to one) of technique on the electric bass guitar. 

    When not performing solo, Moody is an in-demand freelance bassist in the midwest, playing for "whoever asks first." Not bound by musical genres, Moody is equally at home in a blues gig, cover band, kirtan or even musical theatre pit (doubling on electric and upright basses). Moody brings a strong foundation and tonal footing to any gig he shows up for. 

    At home in Kalamazoo, MI, Moody is a dad to two awesome kids (one of which is starting their own musical journey), a coffee and taco enthusiast and occasional cartoonist/illustrator.

    Hi Lee, sorry to hear about the handle breaking. Can you send me some pictures? I'd be glad to get you a replacement.  In terms of "current formula," the only thing that has changed in that regard is the scent used. And that......Read more

    Hi John, residual grit? You should wipe down the strings after applying the Fast-Fret, but that's interesting that there's a residual grit. I will look into this. ......Read more
