Bio

My name is Steen Kevett, Steen as in Spring”steen”. I am a bassist with big dreams of becoming a session player, or even a writer. I currently study music at Norco College and am enrolled in the recording and performance program offered there. Outside of school, I play in a few bands ranging from Country to Pop to Hard Rock. I love playing with all types of musicians to create different noises for others to enjoy. I also love No Treble! Its the best bass news publisher on the web!

Why I play the bass

The sounds of bass! Bass has always stood out to me.

My bass superpower/claim to fame

I like to consider myself a pocket rock bass player. Color when needed, but hold down the fort always!

My influences

At the current moment, I’ve been jiving a lot on Stevie Wonder. Other artists that will always have my heart are Muse, Radiohead and Mutemath just to name a few. I love all sorts of music and am normally drawn to great bass lines. I love classic pop icons like the Temptations and even some new progressive stuff like Thundercat.
