ABOUT

I'm a Brighton-based bass and guitar player looking for new opportunities to gig. I play bass on The Astrelles and Pier Pressure audio tracks here (tracks 1-5), lead guitar on the River Deep tracks (6 - 9), and bass with Reboot Rebels in the videos. I've gigged in the area with all 4 bands, playing funk, soul, pop, rock, blues, ska and reggae. I also play guitar on occasional gigs with The Stanmer Band. I played bass on 3 tracks for The John Williams Syndicate album Out Of Darkness, and the singles Never Want to Be Without You and Luminescent (featuring Petula Clark).
