I have been playing bass guitar for over 30 years originally in local rock bands and then at college where I spent considerably more time playing music than studying for my degree. I have played many gigs around Hampshire and a few in London and much more recently in the West Midlands.
Having moved to the midlands for work I lost contact with the music scene and spent a lot of time learning to make music by myself using computers. As the internet developed I was able to link up with other musicians that way and this lead to me joining Internet Bands and creating a lot of recorded material but little opportunity to play live. I am currently playing bass guitar with Coventry based band Alchemista and double bass on our swing off shoot the Quantum Quartet. I also play with two internet bands, Wirefliez and Ghost riders as well as releasing my own material.
I play electric and double bass. I produce my own music playing or programming all instruments and singing.
I listen to and play a wide variety of music including folk, classic rock. Progressive rock and jazz, though I have been known to produce, House and Trip Hop styles of electronic music as well.
