ABOUT

I've been playing the cello since I was a wee nipper.

I mainly play original and improvised music. Sometimes folk tunes and some Bach and classical now and again!

I love jazz and hip-hop rhythms. And other rhythms of the world!

I have lovely 200-year old english made acoustic cello — and a 6-string electric cello which is great for FX and all sorts of craziness. (See below for list of musical equipment).

I play chunky bass lines, soaring epic stuff, rhythmic riffs and wild solos. I play a range of pizz (finger picking) styles from jazz-style, to phat bass picking, to twee classical.
