Aston Barrett

"I love singing, so when I’m playing the bass it’s like I’m singing baritone, so I create a melodic line each time." 

Along with Jaco, Sir Paul, Larry, and James, among others, he is among the most influential bassists ever. As the anchor of the iconic Bob Marley & The Wailers, Aston “Family Man” Barrett plied grooves, counter-melodies, and unison lines on his Fender Jazz that moved millions – physically, spiritually, and intellectually. His tone, rhythm, and feel is unsurpassed in reggae.
