ABOUT

Ursula Wienken (*2001) is a german-polish bassist, composer and bandleader from Cologne. Both as an electric bassist and as a double bassist she plays in various projects, with a particular preference for rhythmical and danceable music.

born and raised in Neuss, Germany, she picked up the acoustic guitar at the age of 7 and the electric bass at 9. shortly before starting her studies at the Hochschule Für Musik und Tanz in Cologne in 2020, she added the double bass to her repertoire. nowadays, ursula always plays the low tones, sometimes electric, sometimes acoustic, and most of all, fretless.
