ABOUT

I'm always looking for live, studio and/or online collaboration work.

- I have an original band (Hyper Jive). That's my vanity project. I'm also a working musician so I'm looking for jobs. I can fill in for your band on bass live or in studio. I can travel anywhere in the country for studio or gigging jobs.

- I’ve been playing for over 40 years. I play for fun, semi-professionally and professionally. I’m proficient in improvising or sticking to a set structure. I can read music although I’ll admit my sight reading isn’t up to par.

- I've got fretted, fretless and upright basses I can bring to the party and I can do some harmony vocals. I've been doing this a long time and I know where not to play. I have a great understanding of dynamics and can give your band a smooth, solid and worry free bottom end.

- I'm also a multi-instrumentalist to varying degrees. Lead or Rhythm guitars, keyboards, mandolin, ukulele, sitar, harmonica, flute, Chinese Q, autoharp and various percussion....
Any other multi instrumentalists want to jam?

- Genres and styles I've played professionally:
Blues, every Rock imaginable, Metal, Reggae, R&B, Soul, Funk, Country, Americana, Alternative, Grunge, Folk, Jazz, Motown, Acoustic, Cover, Tribute, Original.
