ABOUT

I have played bass guitar for 40+ years but don't let that put you off, I still have a young, vigorous outlook on life! I have a diverse set of playing styles and, having grown up with punk, have the same attitude and outlook that I had as a teenager! Obviously my skills have massively improved since then!

Like a lot of old punks I gravitated towards folk music because of the attitude and vibe but I love anything that is well written, well played and has a point!

I have had the privilege of playing in bands such as The Varukers, Fuse, Tribal Energy, SlingShot, Violet Wylde and Feroxide. I was also one of a handful of bassists, chosen from a world wide list of applicants, given the opportunity to audition for New Model Army in 2013 as a replacement for their outgoing bassist.

I have a permanent rehearsal/studio facility with a separate production space where gear can be safely left setup to just turn up and plugin!

I have a huge amount of studio experience both as a musician and a producer and have released several albums to worldwide critical acclaim from my own studio.

I am looking for fellow musicians, with a professional attitude, to create music to a high standard and generally enjoy the experience!

I am also looking for a female vocalist to write/record and produce with and move on to gigging and touring long term.
