I have been playing bass for over 27 years.
I am available for sessions, tours and shows
I am currently working in a UK wide theatre show - "Diddy" David Hamilton's Rock 'n' Roll Back the Years as part of a 5 piece band
Locally I am playing double bass for the band 'Sultans of Thwing', a jazz & blues band fronted by ex Bowie guitarist John'Hutch' Hutchinson
I also play electric bass with The Unkempt, a four piece band led by saxophonist Dave Kemp playing a mix of jazz, blues and rock
and bass player for Stony - playing a mixture of rock, soul jazz and original material
Have also recently been playing upright bass with The Alastair James Trio, Alastair James is a hugely talented guitarist and singer/ songwriter from Scarborough
Prior to moving to Yorkshire from London last February I played in a 7-piece soul/ funk band playing original material and covers and was also the bass player for female hip-hop artist Martine Girault for her live work. I was also involved in many studio based projects and session work

I have a clean UK driving licence and my own transport and a very professional approach to any work taken
