Feeling a bit camera shy


After a 10 year musical hiatus, relative newcomer to the solo bass scene, JEFF SCHMIDT made a huge splash when he won the 2005 Bass Extremes International Solo Bass Competition – the biggest competition of its kind in the world, attracting entrants from all over the globe.

Competition judge and solo bass legend Victor Wooten of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones called Jeff's performance "some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard played on the bass guitar".

Since then Jeff has been writing and performing highly original solo bass compositions and conducting clinics on his unusual approach to solo bass guitar.

Jeff has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the electric bass world - Michael Manring, Steve Lawson, Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey, Anthony Jackson, John Patitucci, Billy Sheehan, & Will Lee.
