I'm a Brighton-based bass player/guitarist, currently playing bass and gigging with The Upbeat Band. As part of The John Williams Syndicate I've also recently played on the albums Out Of Darkness and Into The Light. On the audio tracks here I'm on bass on The Astrelles and Pier Pressure tracks, and lead guitar on the River Deep tracks. In the videos, bass with Reboot Rebels and The Upbeat Band. I've gigged in and around Brighton for the last few years, playing funk, soul, pop, rock, blues, ska and reggae, as well as Americana/folk with acoustic trio Southbound, plus occasional gigs with The Stanmer Band.
