First and foremost I'm a bassist, a complete bass addict, who spent many years touring as a professional player around various parts of the globe playing World, Jazz, Funk, Soukous, Soca, Latin, Drum n Bass and other amalgams of modern contemporary music. i had the pleasure of working in groups who were supporting DJs (including Jeff Mills, Andy Weatherall), Working with the Netherlands Blazers Ensemble and Real World Records (as bassist for Ayub Ogada). I had the pleasure of working on some co-writing with Jehlisa Andersen, accompanying actress and vocalist Kate Dimbleby in a theatrical production about Peggy Lee, among other interesting activities.
- Available for Instruction?:
- Bass Guitar Instruction
- Double Bass Instruction
Secondly I'm a part-time composer having completed numerous projects for TV, Games and Web Media. To that end I'm a bit of a multi instrumentalist with piano, guitar, drums, percussion and vocal skills to add to the mix.
Now I live in Tokyo with my growing family and gig with Innobassion, polish piano virtuoso Michal Sobkowiak and the Shu Ishikawa Quartet. I also teach (online mostly) and compose, as well as run my online Japanese Bass Shop. BASS JAPAN DIRECT SHOP
