ABOUT

Multi-genre musician, best at bass, with a lot of experience in small and medium clubs. Studio and sound tech. Good stage presence, I show up ready to play. I can read charts and I have experience in community pit bands, musicals and orchestras as well as rock, blues, folk. I find time to practice every day. Working on getting better at vocals, play reasonable rhythm guitar and in the studio I have done keyboards, upright bass, trumpet and the theremin. NOTE: For the Spindrift Videos I am the studio bass player for these recordings, I am not in the videos.
