Mike Janisch

Michael Janisch is an electric & double bassist, composer, bandleader, producer, promoter, professor of music and record label owner originally from the USA now based in London, England. His multitude of talents across the music industry have seen him become one of the most active and in-demand musicians of his generation as well as a lynchpin figure between US & European artists. As a bassist he’s known for his versatility, energy and passion for playing time and groove with authenticity and dedication, no matter the context. As a keen improviser he has been described as ‘virtuosic and emphatic’ (The Guardian) and Bass Musician Magazine asserts “Janisch is one of the few bass players out there who plays both electric and upright with equal facility, passion and musicality.” In addition to performing, Michael is a Professor of Double Bass at the Trinity Conservatoire of Music and the Royal Academy of Music in London, and while touring regularly performs masterclasses at universities and festivals around the world.
