ABOUT

Hi guys

I have just turned 26 and have been playing bass guitar for a little over 10 years. I do play guitar as well and did switch to guitar briefly with my last band (because i wrote all the guitar parts) but would consider myself first and foremost a bassist. I live in Darwen near Blackburn and have been in bands in and around the area for as long as I've been playing. I've played in various styles of band but i feel that alt/rock is where i am at my best.

I am hard working, committed to putting in the time and energy required and willing to travel for gigs.
