I have been playing bass for more years than I care to remember. I describe my style as driving melodic but believe I can be gentle and tasteful as required.

Over the years I have lived in Watford (where I met the 2 others in Pagan Harvest), Oxford and Bristol. Currently I play bass and vocals for Pagan Harvest progressive rock band and for two covers bands – Ouch and Roadhouse.

I can cover most styles as required, and am always happy to be considered for any new work.

My influences range from people like Chris Squire, Andy Fraser, Norman Watt-Roy, Paul McCartney, James Jamerson, Jaco Pastorius, John Wetton to Les Claypool, Mark King etc

I currently am playing a Fender Jaguar using a pair of Aguilar SL112 cabs with a tone hammer 350 amp.
