Chris Minh Doky – Bassist, composer & bandleader

“When I hear better, I play better.“

CChris Minh Doky’s evolution as a bassist is seen by how he moved from being the rhythmic ballast of a piece to the center of the piece. Electric or acoustic, Chris’ music a range of musical genres. While his early performances were in his home country of Denmark, it was his move to New York that solidified his role as an exceptional musician. Doky has been the bassist in famed guitarist’ Mike Stern’s band and shared the stage with names such as Brecker, Scofield, Sanborn, or others. One constant – his myMix personal monitoring systems is a critical piece of his rig used to help ensure Chris delivers a memorable performance – every time.

Doky remains a strong player on the international jazz stage, but years ago his unique solo performances captured the ears and hearts of the pop & classical music world. Common for all the music he does is how Doky expresses himself with the bass as the solo instrument with a direct link to the Danish bass tradition. By bringing his heart and soul into each new challenge, Doky has emerged as one of the most compelling musicians of our time. Queen Margrethe II of Denmark knighted Doky in 2010 for his contributions to the arts, making him a distinguished member of the Royal Order of the Dannebrog.

Regarding the myMix monitoring system Chris shares, “myMix has been a life-(ear!) saver and an eye-opener for me. After too many years of touring with too many shows with horrible & loud monitor sound, I developed hearing damage on both ears. I needed to seriously protect my ears and search for the smallest, easiest, and most customizable setup, possible. Something I could travel with as both a bandleader with my crew and tech and a sideman on my own. MyMix was my answer and has been for years.
Chris’ secret – along with hard work – is his passion for making an emotional and physical experience of the melody he plays. To ensure he delivers his best performance he turns to myMix because (as Chris says), “when I hear better, I play better.”
