Dear friends of the low-end, Bass Player magazine needs you!

We’re running four different collectable covers on our July issues, and we want to use them to celebrate the hottest new bass players in the world. We asked for your suggestions on our social media and distilled the hundreds of replies down to this shortlist. Let us know who you’d like to see in print - you can vote for as many as you like.

Note that these aren’t brand-new bass players in most cases - they might have played a few stadiums in their time, but they’re definitely young (or young-ish) and they’re on their way up. It’s our job to give them a helping hand, so get clicking. Head over here:

Let’s get this done by Tuesday 9 April. Thanks for your help, and do share this far and wide!
