Bio

I started playing bass when I was 16. Before that I used to play trumpet mostly in big bands (don’t ask me to play trumpet these days because I would be terribly out of practice), when I moved instruments I realised that bass guitar was the instrument for me. I went on to play bass in big bands and smaller jazz bands as well as various rock bands, soul bands and function bands.

After spending a year travelling and playing music in the US, I went to The University Of Westmister in 2010 and graduated 3 years later with a BA in Commercial Music. During my 3 years studying I composed music for big bands, string ensambles, sessioned plenty of bass guitar, did an internship at IODA and then INgrooves (music distro. companies) and learnt a lot about the music business by doing a few releases.

These days I’m focusing on doing songwriting and production alongside my teaching and session bass guitar work in studios and on tour. I’m also mastering the double bass.
