ABOUT

I am a bassist who has been playing for 20 years in total, but with a 15 year hiatus in between! I am 40 years old now and I am looking to play with like-minded and enthusiastic folk. I enjoy transcribing tunes, so I am happy to play covers but would be just as able to play originals. I have a good knowledge of harmony so can apply that to any song writing.

I have very wide musical tastes, but my preferred playing genres are soul, motown, funk, pop and classic rock. Basically, as long as there's a groove and an interesting bass part, I'll like it and I'll play it!

I play/practice 5 days a week or so. I have a full-time career job, so I am not looking to "make it big" or make this my number one focus, but I am keen and committed to playing in a quality set-up. If you fancy getting something together or want to chat, just get in touch.
