French bassist in London

I learned music in the conservatory of paris starting by cello at 5 y.o. in classical music, then started to play bass and upright bass in the jazz department during 7 years. Knowledge of jazz harmony and theory.
I played in a lot of band in Paris from pop-rock to jazz band, funk, latin, afrobeat, world music... As much playing with trio as big band, as much covers as original songs. I also play bass synth.

Large knowledge of funk artists, funk standards and jazz standards.
Winner of some jazz music springboard in france with a jazz/funk band (called "Xolot Corp") and a big live experience. Also have studio experience with bands or bass lines for artists from every style.
I'm also productor for rappers or singers, music arranger for some hip/hop projects and composing for them.
