Jedidiah Fowler

Jedidiah Fowler is an experienced bassist in the Christian music scene. Playing in churches and other Christian fellowships since he first started, he has established himself as a more than capable CCM bassist. Inspired by progressive bassists such as Geddy Lee and John Myung, as well as gospel legends like Abraham Laboriel and Terrance Palmer, Jedidiah has always had a flair for unique and creative bass lines. He has also studied at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, where he has expanded his repertoire from rock and gospel to other genres such as jazz, funk, and hip-hop. Additionally, Jedidiah has an aptitude for carpentry and woodworking which he has molded with his love for music. He has created a small luthier business (Fowler Customs) where he designs and builds his own instruments.

“I’ve always found strings to be of the utmost importance in the sound and feel of my bass. A good quality set makes all the difference in the world, and MJC Ironworks has made that difference for me. These strings feel excellent under my fingers and their tone is unmatched—they have truly brought my bass to life.”

Mason Brown

Mason Brown began his life of music in 4th grade while living in Toronto – he played several instruments throughout his school years, but stuck with his original pick, the bass guitar.

Like most other musicians, he has been in numerous bands and played many styles/genres of music ranging from traditional folk to funk and metal. His biggest passion is making original rock music.

He is currently the bass guitarist for the up-and-coming band, In Crimson, based out of South Bend. The group has been highly sought out and has a busy schedule ahead.

” I was in Louisiana about two years ago at a local music shop and the person behind the counter suggested I try some strings he just got in. That was my first set of MJC Ironworks strings. I was floored by the quality of sound! I immediately bought another set for another one of my basses. Same result! Since that day, I have been exclusively using and promoting these great strings from MJC Ironworks. Nothing else even comes close! “

Stu Cook

Stu Cook, who along with his best pal Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, has provided the underpinning for some of the most classic American Rock ‘n’ Roll of the last forty-odd (and we do mean odd) years – Creedence.

He is one of a small handful of electric bassists who have helped define the genre, truly deserving of the legend status that his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame suggests. Besides keeping the flame burning for CCR, Stu was also a member of the country-rock group, Southern Pacific, and along with Cosmo, nailed down the groove for the acclaimed Don Harrison Band. About the current state of affairs Stu says, “There’s still some meat on the bone, baby.”

Alex Petrosino

I am a self taught bassist who has been activily playing bass for 10 years. I started playing guitar but there were always too many guitar players so I tried bass. Since I was eight I have been playing in school bands and later in bands with friends. Although I can play many instruments such as drums, piano and guitar, bass has always been my favorite and what I excel at. My goal is to become like the bands and artists that I idolize and am influenced by. I want to be a bassist that has my own sound and hope that I can influence young musicians looking for their sound.
