Episode 22: BRIAN ALLEN - Nashville Session Ace, (Lady Gaga, Barry Gibb, Dolly Parton, Jonathan Davis etc.)

The Lowdown Society Podcast

Brian Allen is a player who can be heard by more and more albums made in Nashville these days. His versatility has landed him gigs playing upright with artists as diverse as Robben Ford and Korn's Jonathan Davis. His session credits include songs we have all heard like the song "Shallow" by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Brian is also a go-to bass player for famed producer Dave Cobb which he talks about in this episode. We also get to hear about albums by Barry Gibb and Country great Jamey Johnson among many others. This episode wouldn't be complete without all the nerdy details about his bass arsenal, D.I collection and his love for Michael Tobias' basses on Country sessions. How could you not want to hear the story behind that? Much to learn and great stories in this episode.
