ABOUT

Years of gigging experience, solid chops and groove, versatile. Well-trained ear, good grasp of music theory, read music. Learn recorded bass lines accurately or can improvise quality bass parts for covers or originals.

Play everything from classic and contemporary country to any mainstream genre, styles such as jazz-influenced or acoustic pop/rock, classic pop/rock/Top 40 and R&B.

Not gimmicky or overly busy - traditional approach of holding down the bottom, but can fill tastefully and creatively as appropriate. Focus on keeping great time and playing with good tone, touch and dynamics. Can solo credibly, but more into being a solid rhythm section player. Good enough ear for harmonies to provide some backing vocals.

Would love to get involved in a recording project. I'm totally cool with playing to click tracks or sight-reading a composer's bass line.

Also would be interested in outdoor festival gigs.
