Who is Joe Dart?
Let’s just call it a “mutual admiration society.” Vulfpeck bassist, Joe Dart, has always been very kind to the No Treble community. And all of us – here at No Treble – can’t get enough of his funky grooves that often dominate and lead the band’s music. In short: we’re huge fans of how this University of Michigan project has become such a dominant force on the music scene. What’s most interesting is how “in the shadows” Dart’s life has been. When did he start? Who influences him? Why the electric bass? As much as YouTube videos have driven Vulfpeck’s popularity, it’s hard to find anything deep on Dart. There’s not much of a digital legacy there. It’s time for his story to shine through. Enjoy the conversation…
What is Groove – The No Treble Podcast?
This is an ambitious effort. This will be a fascinating conversation. Our goal at Groove is to build the largest oral history of bass players. Why Groove? Most of the content about the bass revolves around gear, playing techniques, and more technical chatter. For us, bassists are creative artists with stories to tell. They are a force to be reckon with. These are the stories and conversation that we will capture. To create this oral history of why these artists chose the bass, what their creative lives are like, and where inspiration can be found.
