ABOUT

Hi! I've been primarily a bassist in bands for about 24 years. I also play keys, trumpet and occasionally drums. I've been involved in projects ranging from indie alt rock to pop, to cabaret-esque multilingual music. I'm always enjoy a good jam, cover set, or learning or writing original music. If my influences resonate with you, I'd be interested in connecting.

I'm also available to play cover gigs if you're looking for someone to play bass!

N.B. The tracks included from SoundCloud are part of a solo project I've been recording demos at home for a couple years now as "The Report", a bit of an experimental electronic/atmospheric/soundtrack-based thing.
