Justin Almquist

Justin is a bassist, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and audio engineer from Seattle.

He started playing music at age 17, drawn to the electric bass and hard rock music. Within 6 months he was on stage playing his concert and recording an EP of original music with his first band.

In college, he expanded his musical focus by delving deep into jazz. He played with small combos and big bands, along with maintaining rock bands and dabbling in various genres. He has explored study on double bass, guitar, and piano.

After school he spent much of a decade working for professional audio manufacturer Mackie (also known for Ampeg and Crate) and refining his focus on engineering.

Currently he focuses primarily on composition and audio engineering, while creating and releasing independent albums.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
