ABOUT

I've played in lots of bands across almost every genre.

Currently playing with an indie rock covers band doing private and corporate gigs, festivals etc mostly around London. Quite a range in size from 50 to 1,500 people.
I also do some recording for film and a little bit of session work for up-and-coming artists.

Grew up playing fusion & funk on my old fretless, sucking up influences from Weather Report to Mick Karn and lot's in between.

Matured (I think) into a 'less is more' attitude, listening to people like the funk brothers and some of the fabulous recordings that came from those artists.

Great music is something that lifts you and for me, it's about finding the groove.

Looking for original artists for gigs and recording that share a passion for groove ...!
