The Loop Loft Tracks The Roots Bassist, Mark Kelley
(Published: October 14, 2013)

Kelley Has Also Played With John Scofield, Meshell Ndegeocello, Elvis Costello and Sara Bareilles

FRAMINGHAM, MASS (October 10, 2013) - The Loop Loft, developer of the world's most musical loop collections, announces that it has signed artist Mark Kelley, bassist with The Roots, to track exclusive bass loops. Music creators will be able to instantly infuse their tracks with Mark Kelley's unique playing using virtually any DAW or music-making software including Pro Tools®, Ableton™ Live, Reason™ and GarageBand®.

Mark Kelley, the son of classical pianist, who also plays cello and piano, holds the bass seat with The Legendary Roots crew, which is also seen weeknights on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on the NBC television network. Mark has previously played with the likes of Meshell Ndegeocello, Jason Moran, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, and Christian McBride among many others. The Roots are a Grammy® Award-winning hip-hop/neo-soul band known for its jazzy, eclectic approach to hip-hop. Kelley cites Pino Palladino as his top influence as a bassist, and focuses his approach on making the track move behind the vocalist.

Music makers will be able to upgrade their rhythm section with all the unique personality of Mark Kelley's versatile, musical playing: a living, breathing bassist with a one-of-a-kind playing style. Producers will find that using The Loop Loft loops is like being in the recording studio with Mark.
