About Jason Heath

Hi–I’m Jason Heath!

I’m the host of Contrabass Conversations, a podcast devoted to exploring music and ideas associated with the double bass.  I’ve been hosting this podcast for almost a decade, and I’ve been running my bass blog even longer.

Both the blog and the podcast have led to great opportunities for me.  I’ve been covered in major media outlets many times, and I was asked to become a faulty member at DePaul University and a member of the International Society of Bassists board of directors.

I’ve built a loyal audience of thousands of people worldwide, and I have an active and enthusiastic audience that I get to interact with every day.
