Show Notes

Today’s guest is Mark Hill, Mark is at the top of the list for holding down the bottom end on recording sessions in Nashville. Clocking in for over 600 session dates a year, he’s well past the 10,000 hours mark of mastering his craft over the past 32 years in the industry. 

Mark’s head turning tone and deep pocket has earned him five nominations for ACM Bass player of the year. He’s toured with artists like Reba, Martina McBride, and Steven Curtis Chapman. He held down the band leader roll for Keith Urban, and has collaborated on records with artists like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Luke Bryan, and pretty much everyone else. 

Mark’s focus on delivering a mix ready tone is arguably at the top of his undisputed calling card for Nashville’s top producers. However, he lays out so many golden examples of the skills beyond the instrument that go into becoming, and remaining a first call session musician. We’re honored to have Mark on the show, and stoked to have you here to learn from his journey.   Here we go!
