He is an innovator, composer, arranger, lecturer, producer, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist. He is a skilled naturalist and teacher, a published author, a magician, husband and father of four, and a five-time Grammy award winner. But those gifts only begin to tell the tale of this Tennessee titan.

Victor, known for his solo recordings and tours, and as a member of the Grammy-winning super group, Béla Fleck & The Flecktones, has won most every major award given to a bass guitarist. He was voted Bassist of the year by Bass Player Magazine three times and is the only person to have won the award more than once.

n 2005 Victor revisited his solo side with the release of Soul Circus (Vanguard Records). A three-ring affair, the disc boasts such guests as the Wooten brothers, Bootsy Collins, Arrested Development rapper/vocalist Speech, Howard Levy, Dennis Chambers, Saundra Williams, J.D. Blair, Derico Watson, fellow Flecktone Jeff Coffin, and a who’s-who of bassists, including Steve Bailey, Oteil Burbridge, Will Lee, Rhonda Smith, Christian McBride, T.M. Stevens, Bill Dickens, and Gary Grainger.

Palmystery (Heads Up Records), Victor’s latest solo work, showcases a wide array of playing and writing skills with songs like Left, Right, and Center (featuring three drummers all playing together), Miss U (featuring The Lee Boys), Us 2 (featuring Victor on slide bass along with blues man Keb Mo), and the thought provoking I Saw God which boldly states “He look like me – She look like you.” (Featured in the movie The Moses Code)

Victor also spearheaded the idea for the super group SMV (Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten). Their new release, Thunder (Heads Up Records), as well as the Thunder tour has quickly become a must-have, must-see product for people all around the world.

Victor Wooten’s Bass/Nature Camp, now in its tenth year, has helped hundreds of musicians of all ages from all corners of the world. The camp’s recent move to its own location Wooten Woods will provide even more opportunities for Wooten and his staff to share their lifelong experiences with others.

    As an aspiring bass player wayyyyy back in middle school, hearing Victor play with the Flecktones absolutely blew my mind. Never heard anything like it since then, and I would love to see him again!

  23. Nadine May 29, 2014 at 3:38 pm #

    Years ago I found “The Music Lesson” written by Victor Wooten. In it, he imparts experience and wisdom and relates the musical journey to the journey of Life. He is a talented and spiritual man – I would love to experience his performance and the vibe he creates in person.

  24. Jo May 29, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    I want to win this because the love of my life is a bass player here in Portland. He admires Victor and his talents so very much! He attended a bass camp with him. I’ve never seen Victor play, and it would be so wonderful to finally see with my handsome! We had a baby 6 months ago and this would be such a great Father’s Day gift to him!
