Heya! My name's Ash.
I'm 26, been playing bass for 15 years and have been playing shows since I was 13.
I have toured nationally with my old band, and also have ample experience playing shows both on the local and festival circuit. I have also done many performances as part of a jazz ensemble and trio, and also as part of an orchestra. I think my style takes a lot of influences from these experiences, and I like to hold down a big low end to drive songs forward.
With work commitments I've slowly lost this side of my life over the past few years and I'd love to get it back. I just want to get back on stage. I've been lucky enough to play in some great bands but I've never been in one that plays the main kind of music I listen to at home. I love hardcore, so if there's anyone wanting to make some loud, aggressive music then please get in touch!
Converge, Every Time I Die and Deftones are my favourite bands.
So! Please feel free to drop me a line! I'm based near Kingston but I have transport.
