SEEKINGBand to Join, Vocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Drums.
A bass player of 2 and a half years, I've seen myself go from a pub band to actively touring in parts of Europe as well as being associated with Athlete, Inspiral Carpets and James McCartney (son of Sir Paul). All that aside, I consider myself in all modesty to be a very good bassist.
My previous band The Retake released a single in the summer of '10 (after our tour of Finland via Amsterdam), which has gone on to sell as far s Finland, Indonesia and Australia.
I work at a music venue called The Joiners and have very good personal contacts around the south of England. Handy stuff!

I've dubbed myself the Indie Indian as I'm a massive lover of good honest british rock'n'roll,but my favourite artists include Muse, Radiohead, Gomez, Metallica, Coldplay, Oasis, The Libertines, Ocean Colour Scene, The Verve, Damien Rice, Jack Johnson, Kula Shaker,etc.
Bass influences are Chris Wolstenholme (after whom I named my guitar), Robert Trujuillo, Colin Greenwood, Flea. I much adore jazz bassists as their musical language holds many incredible gifts.
