About Ethan Jodziewicz
A musician first and foremost, Ethan Jodziewicz fully embodies the notion that nearly anything is possible on the bass. His zeal, musical omnivorousness, and technical ability allow him to not only thrive in bluegrass, jazz, old-time, funk, symphonic and chamber music, but also to push the boundaries of bass playing beyond its traditional roles.
An in-demand ensemble player, Ethan spends much of his time traveling the world playing the stages of Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, A Prairie Home Companion, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and hundreds of others. He is featured a few dozen albums, including Sierra Hull’s GRAMMY-nominated Weighted Mind, several albums with Darol Anger, and a duo recording of fiddle music with Tatiana Hargreaves.
Ethan leads The Ethan Jodziewicz Group, which explores his original fusion jazz compositions and free improvisation. He also currently tours on upright and electric bass with The Milk Carton Kids, following four years on the road with mandolin virtuoso Sierra Hull. Previously he enjoyed four years in Mr. Sun (feat. Darol Anger), and several years performing with singer/songrwriter/multi-instrumentalist Tenzin Chopak. He has also shared the stage with Béla Fleck, David Grisman, Tony Trischka, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Turtle Island Quartet, Howard Levy, Time for Three, the Seattle and Indianapolis Symphony Orchestras, and many more.
Ethan holds a Bachelor’s of Music from the Curtis Institute of Music where he studied with Edgar Meyer and Hal Robinson. He currently lives in Nashville, TN.
