I am an established singer (turned bassist/backing vocalist for the last few years) and have been compared to the likes of Paul Rodgers with the stage presence and attitude of Axl Rose (circa. '88/'89).
Over the past few years I have been the bassist in a couple of bands, one called Innercity Pirates and one called Trip to Miami. But before this venture I was the lead singer and songwriter in a little band called Tommy Gunn (see link below for demos from about 12 years ago).
I have played some of the biggest venues around the globe and have a lot of stage experience as well as radio/television experience. I have been lucky enough to have worked with some great bands and people, including Dirty Pretty Things, Love Amongst Ruin, My Red Cell, The Low Anthem, Goldheart Assembly, The Magic Numbers, James Walsh (Starsailor), The Cribs, Hadouken!, etc.
At the moment I am looking to find a great four or five piece band (including me), between the ages of 22-40 that I can work extensively with and start gigging and getting dirty again.
Ideally, I can just join an already together band who are familiar with each other musically and mentally, however it would be nice to start from scratch and get back to the roots of how I once was.
Anyway, check out http://www.myspace/tommygunnband and http://www.myspace/themrtdaleexperience for all my singing (although I have progressed quite a bit since these recordings). You can find my other bands below:
