“Brilliant job, once again. Sounds really nice and totally lifts the thing to another level. Thanks again for turning it round so quickly and for nailing it.”
“…what you did for this song still blows me away…your bass literally is having a conversation with my vocals…can’t even explain it with words! Extremely grateful to have you be a part of this creative process!”
“Great stuff Dan!”
“Dan works bloody hard and has big ambitions with all the talent to back it up…”
“Your bass playing: for me you can’t put a money value to it. Its feeling and expression like Jaco.”
Good Lord Dan!! Amazing work! I don’t know how come you always know pretty much exactly what I want, a perfect mix of it too. Tense, moody to melancholy and back again. And you deliver so quick! A very professional bassist.
Just finished listening to the tracks and.. WOW man! You were spot on, it is exactly what I wanted and more!
Hey Dan – that’s some great playing, you’re a wizard! Even more excited to bring this life now.
Dan is a top notch groove maker. He has an uncanny ability to find the right groove and really make things swing. His bass playing technique is superb and he is extremely personable and super easy to work with. He simply brings my tunes to life. A true professional. Thanks Dan!
When we were struggling to find a bass player to record with us in the short time we had, Dan came along and spectacularly picked up the tracks we needed to record. He is very dedicated and professional and did not stop until the tracks were exactly where we wanted them to be! The bass-lines he did for us in particular Hollow and Tomorrow were perfect and beyond our expectations. Top bloke as well!
Dan has an incredible ability to know what each song needs, and how to deliver it. He made every track he touched, shine. A fantastic talent and a great guy to work with – a definite go-to man.
I really like your site and your service!!! We used the tube track you gave us – my mixer says it’s awesome!
Really lovely job – exactly right.
I got no words left to say, it’s just so impressive! Definitely, I got more than I expected. Brilliant.
He really added a special and distinguishable touch to our songs, pushing them up to a next level, also always on time, kind and quite thoughtful, always a pleasure working with Dan!
He’s like a chameleon. He can morph and will himself into any genre or style and THAT my friends is why he stands out! Without hesitation I turn to Dan first. He delivers amazing performances every time. If you were to need some cleaning up or changes Dan jumps on them almost immediately and delivers it to you in a very reasonable turn around time.
That was “Off The Hook!” “Phat!” “Slammin!” Thanks so much on such groovy bass lines… I really love it!
The bass sounds great! Very tight! I’m amazed by your lightning-fast turnaround too.
We are happy with the tone and your restrained playing – we believe it suits this song.
Thanks so much for your work on all of the three tracks, I am really happy with them and it’s been really great working with you!
I recently had the pleasure of hiring my first on-line bass player. Dan Hawkins delivered a great session, on time and exactly what I wanted. I can’t recommend Dan highly enough – great job!
These are great! Absolutely spot on. Your suggestion on the mute was a good one, I dare say that’s exactly what the original player used.
Such a great service you provide. I’m well impressed!
Awesome! this is why I keep you around! Your’e makin’ me very happy.
FROM THE INDUSTRY
Dan has a great feel for a track and I enjoyed working with him. He always plays with soul and this is a rare thing these days
Dan, what a pleasure to record with you! I loved your smooth feel and you created beautiful bass lines that were inventive and creative, yet understated.
Dan is simply a world class bass player. We have worked together on countless sessions and gigs and whatever the genre, whatever the part, he nails it every time. From tone to groove, Dan adds style to any track on which he performs.
I’ve worked with Dan on a few occasions and the first things that impressed me were a) his musicality, b) his “sound” and c) what a charmer he is! All in all it’s really a great pleasure to work with Dan.
I have used Dan for sessions on many occasions and wouldn’t use anyone else. He has a plethora of equipment and is always bang on at choosing what is the right bass sound for the recordings I give him. He has appeared on many of DWB’s releases and will continue to do so.
Dan is an extraordinary musician. His technique is formidable, but it’s ability to get inside the music – to get inside your head and play what you can hear – that makes him so special. Things just sound better when he plays them – be it locking down a groove, swinging hard, rocking out, or accompanying a fragile ballad: Dan is a master.
Dan is an incredibly adept musician. His playing is rock solid, he has a wonderful feel, and he is a highly ‘musical’ player.
Fine, sensitive playing.
Dan brings tone warmth and character to my tracks. Essential feel and groove for any track.
