Profile Information

About Me:
Samille Johnson is a music composer/arranger/musician and audio engineering graduate of Tempe Arizona's Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences.

Currently functioning as principal engineer at The AudioWorkShop Studio's based in Victorville, California

"The Musical Biography of Samille Johnson"

It all started at about thirteen, this young vibrant young boy from Dallas Ft. Worth Texas, began this musical journey.

At first it was undecided on what instrument it would be especially since his main roots were gospel, blues and r&b.

Samille began playing Cello at age 13 in the junior high school orchestra and eventually took interest in an instrument much larger and robust.

Bass, yea that was it, It had a big beefy sound and much larger then he was and that was all he needed to stand out since he was so short. (Smile)

In those earlier days Samille played the local club scenes in Dallas Texas and eventually to the big stage with local bands opening for touring groups like the Commodores, Barkays, The Chilites and many others.

Heading west in the 90s he hooked up with "Gap Band" guitarist Jimmy Macon whom inspired him to began composing and arranging his own tracks.

It was Jimmy Macon and Thom Bonner from Texas based band “The Van Dykes” whom truly influenced Samilles musical talents and encouraged him to compose Engineer and perform his own tracks using synthesizers, drum machines and his bass.

Samille later moved to Los Angeles in 1996 and began working with Billy Preston in the studio sharpening his production and arrangement skills.

In June of 2003 Samille headed to Tempe, Arizona to the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences and graduated late 2004 as a professional audio engineer.

Combining those years of experience composing and arranging and now with the ability to engineer his own tracks, this made for a beautiful combination of skills.

Utilizing technology combined with the ability to play several instruments Samille began producing for other artist in Texas and Southern California.

Trying to decide on whether to start a band and deal with different personalities or use what God had given him, it was now time for a debut.

Samille said he had a "HOT DATE" with destiny and it was time to put it all together.

"411 on Bassist Samille Johnson's New Single. 2020"

Smooth Jazz Bassist Samille Johnson released a very interesting arrangement of the song  "Think I'm Going Out of My Head" and he used a Piccolo Bass to play the melody.

This track features "Mr. Reginald Lee" on Piano from Dallas Ft. Worth Texas, and I must say this a very interesting arrangement.

I have heard a few arrangements of this song but this one is very interesting and would make a great addition to your playlist if you are into Smooth Jazz, Easy Listening etc.
