Adam Nitti

Adam Nitti has been establishing his own voice amongst his contemporaries as both a bassist and recording artist for two decades.

He has released five solo recordings on his own Renaissance Man label which have drawn international acclaim, and has also appeared on three Grammy-winning albums and another Grammy-nominated album to date. Adam has recorded and performed with such artists as Kenny Loggins, Carrie Underwood, Michael McDonald, Christoper Cross, the Dave Weckl Band, Steven Curtis Chapman, the Jeff Coffin Mu’tet, Susan Tedeschi, Lincoln Brewster, T Lavitz, Jimmy Herring, Scott Henderson, Jon Anderson, Peter Erskine, Heather Headley, Al Green, Mike Stern, Chris Tomlin, Casting Crowns, Wayne Krantz, and many others.

Adam’s passion for the bass guitar has been matched in more recent years by his passion for sharing musical knowledge. In 2003, he and fellow-bassist Len Sitnick co-founded the first-ever online interactive music school, The knowledge and experience gained from his involvement with MusicDojo ultimately led him to create, a membership-based online academy for bass guitar launched in 2012. Using an extensive curriculum-based library of HD video lessons as its foundation, the site also offers interactive options and live masterclasses.

In addition to his work as a performer, composer, and online educator, Adam is also an adjunct faculty member of Belmont University's School of Music and the Atlanta Institute of Music. He is also a bass clinician for Aguilar Amplifiers, Ibanez Basses, and D'Addario Strings, and is a staff instructor for both Victor Wooten's “Wooten Woods” music camps and Gerald Veasley’s Bass Boot Camps. Adam is also a former columnist for Bass Player magazine and Bass Musician Magazine, and has made hundreds of appearances at such events as Euro Bass Day-Italy, Bass Player Live!, Bass Day U.K., the Outreach Festival-Austria, and the European Bass Day-Germany.

“Adam Nitti is one of the amazing players who is at the forefront of the bass movement. I always look forward to hearing his CDs just to see what he will do next.”

-Victor Wooten

“Adam's bass lines are supremely interesting, his soloing is masterful and his pocket is deep, but Adam seems to command a higher level of musicianship and that translates throughout every member of the band...”
