CHARLIE WOOTON


BASSIST . PRODUCER . COMPOSER . TEACHER

“Charlie Wooton, bassist, producer and songwriter originally from Louisiana, is one of the most grooviest bass players on the planet.” - Mad Professor Amplification


“American Charlie Wooton is an inventive and extremely skillful bass player. Better yet, it's a musical face. Its lines have melody, a seductive dance and / or a really contagious percussive footprint. Extrapolates the essential role of the accompaniment. Such a person could produce only peculiarly interesting works.And this was the case of ZabaDuo, a project developed alongside Brazilian percussionist Rafael Pereira. The 2015 instrumental album illustrates the "less is more" maxim in rich detail. It was practically carved with bass and tambourine. The exceptions are the participation of Daniel Groover (guitar in a track) and Laura Reed (vocal in two tracks). And look who comes around!”

- Bass Player Brazil 



QUOTES.

"Explosive drummer Yonrico Scott (Derek Trucks Band) and 5-string badass Charlie Wooton provide groovy groundwork for the globetrotting ensemble, which is currently supporting its super-solid sophomore release. Wooton sinks his teeth fathoms-deep into RSB’s fusion of greasy New Orleans funk and guitar-heavy Southern rock, two seemingly disparate styles that Wooton and RSB combine seamlessly into a satisfying signature sound." - Bassplayer.com




"Charlie Wooton’s bass lines smolder with a heat that hangs charcoal smoke in the air."-The Syracuse New Times
