Mitch Starkman


Mitch began his musical journey taking up classical piano at age 7 and continued studying into his teens, even after discovering the bass at age 12. Switching to bass he began playing in various bands and doing freelance session work anywhere he could find it, eventually becoming the in house bassist for several studios and expanding his session and live playing experience.
Mitch has been doing sessions for decades including album projects for major labels Capitol/EMI and Attic records, Juno nominated albums, commercial work, and numerous independent releases. He’s also played on the big stage and the club circuit with well known Canadian acts.
Mitch prefers the La Bella RX-N4A’s as his string of choice for all his basses. He has recently joined the exclusive club of Olinto bass owners! He is currently playing an Olinto 4-String PJ, and a Olinto 5-String PJ! These basses were created with Mitch’s personal refinments from the 60’s positioning on his J pick up, to the tapered neck design. This man knows how to build an Olinto bass!
