Doug Wimbish
A highly respected and sought-after master of the bass guitar, Doug records and performs with a diverse roster of talent. From his early days with Sugarhill Records, to his pioneering work in TackHead and Living Colour, Doug is best described as a musical virtuoso. His bio reads like a who’s who of rock, pop and hip hop: The Rolling Stones, Mos Def, Depeche Mode, Madonna, and Jeff Beck, to name a few. Doug hails from Bloomfield, Connecticut. He began playing after receiving a guitar from his parents when he was 12 years old. Doug grew up to the sounds of the 60s and 70s and found inspiration from the sounds of Miles Davis, George Clinton, and Sly & the Family Stone. He was also heavily influenced by family; his brother Victor and his Bahamas-based Uncle Joey and Aunt Naomi. During summer vacations, Doug frequented his Aunt’s music store, further rousing his musical interests.
