In Session With Charles Berthoud
Charles Berthoud has over 600 five star reviews on AirGigs. He’s an electric bassist, originally from London, now living in Boston, MA. He has high-level professional experience, having recorded original music for Warner/Chappell Production Music, as well as collaborating with producers from prominent labels such as Nettwerk Records. He currently tours regularly across the US in a variety of acts such as a duo with pop/rock artist Skyler, and the Celtic/Bluegrass band Cat & the Moon.
With his selection of high-quality basses, he can get an incredible range of tones; everything from an old-school Motown sound to a hi-fi Marcus Miller tone, as well as beautiful fretless sounds from the likes of Pino Palladino to Michael Manring.
Charles has the ability to play busy, or sit back in the pocket. He can achieve a Flea-like slap sound, if that’s what you need. He puts absolutely everything into making sure that his bassline is perfect for your track, and he plays in all styles.
Although Charles is on the road a lot, his studio setup is portable so he can work any time.
