SEEKING

Band to Join, Bass Guitar.

ABOUT

I have played piano since I was young and over the years in a number of bands as well as playing lounge piano for a while.

A while ago I decided to follow my childhood dream of playing the drums instead and I'm loving it. Having practised for a while, I am now ready to play in a band. As a musician with years of classical training, I understand music well and will bring a lot to the right band.

I have a degree in Music Systems engineering (studio engineering) but ended up being a web developer - I feel it is the right time in my life to push the music side of life again! I am self employed and flexible so will easily fit in around a rehearsal schedule.

Happy to play covers or write original music.
I hope to gig with the band I find at some point if not straight away.
