CJ Boyd
Upright Bass
Bassist/composer CJ Boyd uses bass, voice, and loops in order to try and stop time. Intimate and intense, honestly unique, massive and delicate. Since March 2008, this low-end vagabond has been on a perpetual tour throughout North America and Europe. On his native soil he travels by way of the Jambulance, a repurposed ambulance that has been converted to run on vegetable oil. In Europe, it's a variety of trains, buses, ferries, planes, and occasional cars and vans.  
 
Though solo bass performance takes up the bulk of his time and effort, he also plays in the following projects:
 
He frequently improvises with musicians from all over, and has recorded with Sandro Perri in Toronto, Chris Schlarb in Long Beach, DMA in Indianapolis, Danny Grody in San Francisco, and many others. 
In addition to touring year round, C.J. runs the music label Obsolete Media Objects.
