"Yonit Spiegelman… Bass Player, Soulful Singer,
Songwriter and Educator CAN do it all!"
Bassist, composer, producer, and educator Yonit Spiegelman has received international acclaim for her work both on and off the stage. Her melodic, soulful, punchy pocket-groove bass lines have been heard on recordings and live stages in collaboration with a variety of artists across multiple genres. Nowadays Yonit takes part in the New York Broadway Musical Production of Six The Musical as a Subbing Musician (on Bass).
In addition to sharing world stages as a sought-after sidewoman, Spiegelman’s pairing of bass grooves with a pop sensibility merge well with the folk-inspired vocals heard on her own recordings. She was the leader, performer, songwriter, and producer of Foreign Hues, a jazz/world/R&B ensemble whose 2015 debut EP "First Words" earned praise from both critics and audiences alike. Her first recording as a solo artist, Fall, released in April 2019, was followed by four singles, including “Promise,” featuring Tiff Ortiz and Pink Flamingo Rhythm Review as well as her most recent single and music video, “Be With You”.
As a composer, Spiegelman’s music has been heard internationally through her work writing original compositions, arrangements and re-records featured in advertisements by FIFA WWC, AMC + Coca Cola, Meta, Uber, KFC, Campbell's Soup, NHL, Liquid IV, John Deere, Toyota, and Grove Collaborative, to name a few. She also took part as lead composer for the short documentary "Gender Outlaw: A Bodysurfing Story" directed by Peter Williams and winner of Best Short Documentary in the Berlin Indie Film Festival 2022. .
A testament to both a loyal fan base and the respect of music industry peers, Spiegelman has been interviewed and featured on several podcasts, radio programs, and other established international media outlets including Bass Musician Magazine, She Shreds Magazine, Forbes, Working Musician Podcast, WTBQ Radio, WERS Radio, CFMU Radio, and Israeli National Radio Galatz. She has also earned endorsements from Sadowsky Guitars, GHS Strings, and Coils Boutique.
