About me:

Rene Camacho is an Acoustic and Electric Bassist living in Los Angeles.
Originally from Tucson, Arizona, Rene received a Degree in Jazz Studies
and Composition from The University Of Arizona. While Trombone was his
first instrument he always had an affinity for the Bass and in his college
years the switch was made. Since moving to Los Angeles in 1996 Rene has
had the opportunity to explore many musical ventures, both live and
recording. When Rene first arrived to Los Angeles he began working with
many Latin artists, most notably, a five year stint with Celia Cruz and a
brief time with Tito Puente. From there Rene began branching out to
different genres such as Jazz, Soul, R&B, Country, as well as Rock. This has
enabled him to record and tour with a wide variety of artists from different
musical backgrounds. Such artists include Sergio Mendes, Ry Cooder, Oscar
Castro Neves, Robben Ford, Angelique Kidjo, Linda Ronstadt, Draco Rosa,
Raul Malo (The Mavericks), Rickie Lee Jones, Juan Gabriel, The Fifth
Dimension, The Pointer Sisters, Arnold McCuller, Mongorama and Dean
Brown. Rene Continues to actively tour with Kevin Eubanks, Canadian
Pianist Carol Welsman as well as with Poncho Sanchez and record with
