This week, Bass Freq’s host Josh Paul sits down with Robert “Bubby” Lewis, a prolific player who has thrown down grooves for an impressive host of such acts as Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Lupe Fiasco, and Stevie Wonder. Bubby takes a compositional approach to playing, paying careful mind to when he should lay back in the pocket or step out in front with jaw-dropping chops on his trusty 6-string bass. Speaking with Josh, Bubby takes us into his world with insightful anecdotes and advice that span recording, touring, gear, and staying inspired.
