Steve Jenkins

Steve Jenkins is part of the new wave of modern electric bass players. In addition to his mind-blowing technical prowess, his musicianship has allowed him to fit into a diverse range of musical situations that have run the gamut from face-melting prog-metal to experimental microtonal jazz-funk to dubbed-out electronica bass lines to classic sounding r&b grooves–sometimes all within the framework of one song.

As a sideman, some of the musicians he has recorded, toured, or performed with include: Vernon Reid, Thomas Pridgen, Gene Lake, Kenwood Dennard, Jeff Bhasker, David Gilmore, Victor Wooten, Cindy Blackman, Corey Glover, Keith Carlock, John Scofield, John Medeski, Chris Buono, Marc Cary, Matthew Garrison, The Roots, Grand Puba, Graham Haynes, Screaming Headless Torsos, Terri Lynn Carrington, John Shannon, David Fiuczynski’s KIF, Jacques Schwarz-Bart, Dean Bowman, DJ Logic, Maya Azucena, Sam Kininger, Adam Deitch, Steve Hunt, Eric Krasno, Hiromi, Jeff ‘Skunk’ Baxter, John Blackwell, Sean Rickman, Federico Gonzalez Pena and many others.

As an educator, he has taught at Berklee College of Music’s BassLines Summer Program for the past 8 years.  He also was part of the first group of faculty to teach at the Swarnabhoomi Academy of Music in Southeast India in the Summer/Fall of 2010
