Ivan Lins


In the early 1980's, the enduring love affair between American and Brazilian musicians took a new turn when it was announced that super-producer

Quincy Jones


was looking for a special Brazilian touch on an upcoming album for jazz guitar great

George Benson.


It was percussionist Paulinho da Costa who introduced Quincy to Ivan's music.

The result was 'Dinorah, Dinorah', a Lins original that was included on Benson's million-selling 'Give Me the Night'.

It’s all about bass and working with great people on the highest level possible. It’s my primary goal to make those around me sound great and to have a good time in the process. This bass continues to blow people and the competition out of the water. Thanks again for this awesome instrument!

Sincerely, James Simonson

Jacob Eller, Clevinger bassist


A native Virginian, Jacob was born in Marion, Virginia and grew up in the neighboring town of Chilhowie. He learned

to play bass at age of 15 on an instrument given to him by his father Randal Eller, who played fiddle and sang in

the band Cleghorn. This was a local band that played mainly for the fun of it, but these musicians were Jacob’s

mentors, teaching him how to work in a band. Jacob began playing professionally in 2003, when he relocated to Berea,

KY to play with his good friend Ryan Blevins’ band, Canebreak. That same year he started performing with the

bluegrass band No Speed Limit before joining

Sierra Hull & Highway 111 in 2009.
