Paul Bushnell

Real Name:
Paul Bushnell
Profile:
Irish born, Californian.based, session bass player, producer, and music director. Even though he was classically trained at University College Dublin, and appears for a wide variety of artists, he has a preference for playing rock-style bass. Bushnell played the 'live' circuit in Ireland before he got his 'big break' through appearing in, and scoring for, the film 'The Commitments'. However, this did not instantly lead to his studio career taking-off, that came some years later after his move to Los Angeles.

Among those for whom he has worked, are: Phil Collins, Elton John, Alanis Morissette, Nelly Furtado, and Céline Dion. Since 2002, he has been the bass player and music director for Faith Hill.
