Professional Bass Guitarist situated in West London. Capable on playing a varied amount of genres, specializing in Rock, Funk, Jazz, Country and Pop. I have had a wide range of experience in touring the U.K, studios sessions, teaching and playing in many gigs and festivals through out the U.K. I have also been previously signed to a record label for Glasgow Rock/Funk band "The Neon Alter" under the record label "Diffusion Records", were we had the chance to perform with many established acts, such as popular electro band "Burn the negative".
Since then, I have been granted an HNC in music performance from Langside College (Glasgow). I am currently in my 2nd year of study, doing a Bmus Degree in popular music performance for bass, with Tech Music Schools (London).
I have also played in the well respected orchestra "Glasgow strings orchestra" for just over a year, with myself playing Double Bass and Bass Guitar. This was conducted by Andrew Morris, in which we played several classical arrangements varying from Mozart to film scores. During this time, we played several shows in the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD).
I am also interested in composing, and found myself co-writing several songs for the bands I have been in. Many of the songs I write myself focus many around a piano accompaniment, which I am also able to play to a high standard.
I am fully geared with transport and instruments. Currently have two 4-strings and a 5-string, amplification, various pedals and currently getting an endorsement deal with Hartke. I am also able to rent any equipment fairly easily through my university.
