    Its not really bass stuff but I can offer advice on recording mixing and mastering. As an audio engineer I have recorded a wide range of music. As a bassist I have played many styles.

    A couple more double basses...
    Influences and Teachers:
    When I was young Brian Ritchies acoustic bass guitar playing on the violent femmes first album. Miloslav Gajdos, Charlie Haden, I love his versatility and the wide cross section of music he has played. I listen to everything from industrial noise to classical music. As a writer I dont think I am influenced by anyone but as a player I am in awe of the masters of their instruments. I guess I am more inspired by music as a whole rather then just bassists. In the electric realm I like the post punk bass sounds, Simon Gallup of the Cure one of my favourites.

    Motorcycling (Ducati's), composing, writing, audio production

    Teaching Credentials:
    I have run music workshops for people with disabilities as well as teaching from a music school.
    I have had an eclectic musical background and have played many genres, always original music that I am the creative force of. I was a professional audio engineer for many years and have produced countless indi bands. I run a small boutique label and continue to release music from my projects. Only play double bass these days, gave away the electric instruments except for some recording projects.
