Band to Join.

ABOUT

I am primarily a bass guitarist but I can play guitar also to a basic level and I can also sing. Currently I sing Second Tenor within The Gurt Lush Choir, Bristol. I have played bass in bands since I was 14 and I have written many songs over the years. I have mainly played within the genres of Rock, Heavy Metal, Grunge, Indie, 80s Pop and Alternative. One of my photos is of me in my spoof heavy metal band Vikings of Steel. I generally don't dress like that for obvious reasons. I have a good ear and am able to learn at a quick pace. I am able to commit to regular gigs and I have gigged alot over the years.

As I am fairly new to Bristol I see this as also a social thing and would like to make a few friends from this along the way.

Influences

In terms of bass players Steve Harris from Iron Maiden is a huge influence, as is Andy Rourke from The Smiths. I guess I am influenced by melancholic sounding music. I love Anathema, Porcupine Tree and Paradise Lost for example.
