Symbiotic Souls is the latest album release from bassist and composer Luico Hopper. Listeners will experience a wide array of musical styles ranging from contemporary jazz and R&B to funk and gospel.
On this latest album, Hopper fuses the upright bass in non-conventional form with various electric bass guitars. On certain tracks he doubles the upright bass with the fender vi electric bass, a style that was once used  by producers and studio bassists in the early  60’s. The album's vibrant musical setting includes an all-star rhythm section of musicians along with a funky horn section.
Throughout his distinguished professional career, Hopper has played with a wide spectrum of global artists who helped inspire the album's compositions. This confluence of multiple musical influences is the symbolic heart of Symbiotic Souls.
