ABOUT

I been bass player for over 20 years, songwriter and Producer. Been lucky that I've worked and collaborated with various artists and bands throughout two decades of playing music and have performed over 100 shows in the UK, Belgrade, Chile and Argentina.

Currently I am the band leader of SPEETK, an electro/triphop trio hailing from south London and I am producing our debut album. So far we have launched three singles; 'At the Other Side', ‘Out of the Dark’ and ‘Waiting Game' all mastered by Frank Arkwright in Abbey Road Studios in London.

Since my arrival in the UK in 2011, I been actively performing in music festivals around England, like the Camden Rocks Festival, Ealing Blues Festival, Lechlade Music Festival, Time Out Rising Stars and the Hanwell Hootie. I have played with bands with quite diverse styles like: LIFE AND DEATH (Funk), PURPLE-X (Prog Rock), STELLIFY (Hard Rock-Blues) and BADVERSION (Alternative). With many of this projects I’ve been gigging regularly at well established music venues as: The 100 Club, 02 Academy Islington, 229 The Venue, The Dublin Castle, 93 Feet East, Camden Assembly (ex Barfly)among others.

Was the year 2000 in Santiago of Chile, when I founded ‘ANOMALO’ a fusion-rock band which fluctuated between 5 and 8 members. Also wrote, gigged extensively and recorded a few LP for the metal band ‘MANIFESTO’ (1997-98) and for the hard rock band ’DION’(2005-2011) which highlights are the suport acts for Guns and Roses (2011) and Aerosmith (2010).

My musical tastes are extremely broad, from jazz to punk rock. I love jazz-funk, fusion, electronic, trip-hop, synth rock, indie rock, blues, hard rock, progressive and alternative too.
