ABOUT

Hi there, I'm a 27 year old multi instrumentalist looking at going/forming a blues or a folk group. My main instrument is Bass which i've been playing for over 10 years, but I also play electric and acoustic guitar, slide guitar, lap steel, dobro and harmonica. I'm hoping to meet other musicians who like to just have fun and play music, and happy to swap instruments around a lot - a band where no one is the drummer, no one is the bassist, no one is the guitarist, everyone plays what needs to be played for a certain song.

If you are interested then contact me at tombobwarland @ . com

Influences

A huge range of influences as i listen to a huge range of styles, I listen to a lot of blues, so guitarists like Hamilton Loomis, Buddy Guy, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Johnson, BB King, Eric Clapton all hit the list, as does Junior Wells and Howlin Wolf.

I also listen to a lot of folk music, especially Seth Lakeman and Show of Hands, but also Lau, Jerry Douglas, Bellowhead.

These are just the top of the iceberg, as i listen to jazz, soul, funk, rock, gospel, Rhythm and Blues, folk, and classical and draw influences from all of this.
