I'm a bass player with 35 years experience, from my formative years playing local pubs and clubs, right up to function band/corporate experience travelling all over the UK.
I have excellent quality gear and my own (reliable) transport. I can provide decent backing vocal and am also happy to sing lead vocals as long as the key is right! :)

Fairly eclectic, to be honest...
As a teenager in the late 70s/early 80s, I grew up listening to rock bands like Rainbow, Whitesnake, Deep Purple, Wishbone Ash, Thin Lizzy and Free, and my bass playing heroes were Neil Murray and Martin Turner.
I got into the blues as a teenager, when on a visit to Texas I saw Stevie Ray Vaughan and ZZ Top on the same bill. I was blown away by both bands, but SRV in particular was just amazing.
I've also always loved female singer-songwriters like Janis Ian, Judie Tzuke, Julia Fordham and, more recently, KT Tunstall.
I also enjoy a lot of Australian music, especially Cold Chisel ,The Black Sorrows, Hunters and Collectors, Noiseworks, and The Screaming Jets.
As a bass player, I also enjoy playing funk, soul and disco. How could I not?
Recently I've been discovering Faces (a band that passed me by when I was a teenager) and especially the solo material of their bass player, the late great Ronnie Lane.
