ABOUT

Versatile, experienced and dedicated bassist based in Neath Port Talbot. Recently relocated from Cornwall.

Currently playing bass with Cardiff-based Blues and Soul singer, Toriah Fontaine. Always on the lookout for dep/session gigs and composing/recording collaborations. "Original" or "covers", doesn't matter. Open to anything.

Mostly known previously as bass player with the Bare Knuckle Blues Band (the official band of Bare Knuckle Pickups) and as an endorsing artist of Darlington-based Cassidy Guitars with a varied range of UK-wide professional gigging experience.

Most recently playing trombone and occasional harmonica with Newquay-based Ska band, Ten Bob Notes, who have just released their debut album. Seeking exciting projects and collaborations with bands and songwriters looking to compose, record and gig.
