ABOUT

Easy going, young of liver and well booted. Looking to commit to either a bass or singing gig, experienced doing either or both, and happy either way. It's more about the music and finding a good fit. Preferably doing at least some original material, with regular rehearsals and gigging, possibly more if that's the way it goes. I like to be involved in the writing process when it suits the song and can contribute ideas myself both musically and lyrically. There's at least a couple in the tank which I'd love to collaborate on with people. Equally, if it's a case of fitting in to an already established set up I can adapt. Obviously got all my own gear, but at the moment no transport. Hopefully this will change in the near future as I can drive, just haven't had the funds or requirement to run a motor for a while.
