Chris Kent

Spend a little time with bassist Chris Kent and you’ll find that he’s so much more than a musician. He’s also a man who loves life. Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, he moved to Nashville, Tennessee to become one of the busiest first-call bassists for Gospel, Country, R&B, Jazz and Rock artists. He has taken the stage at the Grand Ole Opry along side artists such as Lorrie Morgan, has toured with guitarists Steve Lukather and Larry Carlton, saxophonist Kirk Whalum, Take 6 and many more. From the Tonight Show to Jazz Central on BET to Live From the House of Blues, Chris Kent can be found wherever there’s a groove to lay down. Join us as he takes us from his first Montgomery Ward’s bass as a kid, to surviving cancer, and ultimately finding his way to a successful career and purpose in life. He’ll even play some of his bass grooves and discuss how he builds a bass line. Inside MusiCast welcomes Chris Kent.
