- Musician & Instructor
- Current Setup:
My go-to axe is an Ibanez 5-String SR-405.
I also have an upright, 2 Fender Jazz Bases (one Mexican Standard from the mid-90s and one Geddy Lee model), a Hofner and a Dean Fretless Edge, as well as quite a few non-basses.
- Favorite Genres:
- Jazz, Fusion, Jamband, Classical, Funk, Latin, Reggae, World, Classic Rock, Other Rock, R&B... etc.
- Gigs and Ensembles:
My main gig is with SisterMonk, a four-piece Djembe-fronted female-led band that plays all sorts of genres, in which I play lead-bass.
I do a lot of solo stuff too.
I also play in various other projects as a studio musician, musical director, etc. etc.
- G.A.S. List:
I would kill for a cheap Fodera... :3
I'm also interested in an electric upright, a six-string, a better fretless bass, an active p-up / preamp system for a fender jazz bass (like EMG-J), a good pickup for my upright...
I'm seeking an amp at the moment! http://www.talkbass.com/threads/amp-recommendations-for-tonal-clarity-details-in-post.1141839/
- Influences and Teachers:
Teachers: my first real bass teacher was Mike Frost, an amazingly talented student of Jaco's. At Berklee I had too many to list; Esperanza Spalding was probably my favorite.
