Interview with John Carey for his acclaimed book                        The Working Bassist





    Jack Daley is a world-class bassist, studio musician, record producer, mixer and Studio owner www.dugdeepstudio.com


   After moving to New York city in the late eighties, Jack quickly established himself as one of the city’s top bassists. In 1993, he auditioned with about twenty of New York’s top players for Lenny Kravitz’s Universal Love Tour. That was the easy part. After the audition Jack and another hopeful were flown to L.A. to compete in an open, radio-fueled audition that involved 250 more contenders. Jack nailed that audition, and spent nearly 15 years as Lenny’s bassist of choice on world tours, tv appearances, videos, CD’s and DVD’s.


      In addition to his work with Lenny, Jack has been in high demand as a studio bassist, musical director, producer and mixer for numerous prominent artists. Just a partial list of recording and live and or Tv Performances  below
