Ethan Jodziewicz


A musician first and foremost, Ethan Jodziewicz fully embodies the notion that nearly anything is possible on the bass. His zeal, musical omnivorousness, and technical ability allow him to not only thrive in bluegrass, jazz, old-time, funk, symphonic and chamber music, but also to push the boundaries of bass playing beyond its traditional roles.

An in-demand ensemble player, Ethan spends much of his time traveling the world, playing on the stages of Carnegie Hall, the Grand Ole Opry, A Prairie Home Companion, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and hundreds of others. He is featured on many albums, including Sierra Hull’s GRAMMY-nominated Weighted Mind, several albums with Darol Anger, and a duo recording of fiddle music with Tatiana Hargreaves.

Ethan has spent the last four years touring with mandolinist Sierra Hull, and recently became a member of The Milk Carton Kids new touring band. Previously he enjoyed four years in Mr. Sun (feat. Darol Anger), and several years performing with singer/songrwriter/multi-instrumentalist Tenzin Chopak. He has also shared the stage with Béla Fleck, David Grisman, Tony Trischka, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Turtle Island Quartet, Howard Levy, Time for Three, the Seattle and Indianapolis Symphony Orchestras, and many more.

Ethan holds a Bachelor’s of Music from the Curtis Institute of Music where he studied with Edgar Meyer and Hal Robinson. Before transfering to Curtis, Ethan spent three years in Ithaca, studying bass at Ithaca College. He currently lives in Nashville, TN.
