Who am I, indeed? Well, for starters:
- I am a bass player. I play both electric bass and double bass, with a pretty even split in focus.
- I am an improviser. Most of the music I make is based in contemporary forms of improvisation, mostly along the lines of ‘jazz’ or ‘free improvisation’. Of course, my rock or funk sides also like to make their presence known.
- I live in Newcastle upon Tyne, in the North East of England. I have done since about 2005.
- I believe in magic, and that it exists when performers are given space to make art. Music is my primary way of doing this.
As well as making music I’m also a devoted fan of comic books, tapletop RPGs and assorted culty, fringe geekery. My life pretty much revolves around those two points, and I’m equally geeky about both. It’s a good way to be!
