Joel Starander



Gothenburg , Sweden


Im from Gothenburg , Sweden and I started to play in the mid 70s after seeing Deep Purple live in 1975 : ) I was nine !! and totally floored )

Since then I have played on everything from Heavy metal to Eurovision song contest songs.

In the early 90s I studied at BIT in California and I had a blast playing in all those classic clubs like

The Coconut teazer, The Whiskey, Roxy etc..Nowadays Im in to songwriting as well as teaching and I still love the bass as much as when I first picked it up 35 years ago...

Anything with strings but mostly Fender style instruments

For smaller gigs I usually go direct to PA via a Sansamp or a Hartke VLX,

for larger gigs I use rentals, mostly Ampeg
