ABOUT

Please note, I'm not currently looking for any more projects at this time. However, I am in need of a vocalist for a current project, and I'm keeping this account active and up to date in case I need it in the future.


I'm a moderately experienced, very dedicated bassist. I'm 25 years old and have been playing bass for the past 11 years. I also previously played keyboards for 14 years, although I haven't done it too seriously for quite a while now. Regardless, it's given me a solid understanding of music theory and composition, and stood me in good stead in other areas of my musical development.

I have my own transport and decent equipment, and I work as a sound engineer at a recording studio in Birmingham (I have about 5 years of hands-on experience in this field).

I've had about 4 or 5 years of live experience mostly around the Midlands, but I've also played further afield when the occasion has arisen. I've yet to play outside the UK.

I'm not the most fantastic singer, but I have a good sense of pitch and I'm capable of a few backing vocals if required.

My playing history mainly consists of rock, metal and prog. This is where the foundations of my interests lie, but I try to listen to all kinds of stuff and I'm willing to think outside the box where the situation calls for it.
