I am a bass player, composer and teacher in London. All my news and upcoming events will appear here… Feel free to get in touch.
2017 was a busy year with many highlights! I was fortunate to play with lots of fantastic musicians. It was a good year for recording original music which will see the light of day in 2018!
Tom Neale’s album featuring myself, Ben Brown Aubin Vanns and others is due out soon. Check out the video below taken from the recording session back at the beginning of June.
I’m excited to announce that I will finally be releasing a 4-track EP of my own music, featuring my trio (Will Butterworth on piano and Marco Quarantotto on drums).. I’m really happy with the music we recorded together in November and the EP is due for release in March!
Delighted to record last week with Tom Neale Quartet. Saxophonist Tom has written some great compositions pooling lots of his influences. The session at Resident Studios in London was also filmed so hopefully there’ll be some sounds and video soon… We followed it up with a lovely gig at Cafe alento in Leeds..
I was on electric bass for this one too!
With Tom Neale – sax, Aubin Vanns – guitar and Ben Brown – drums.
A little solo double bass piece inspired by shakey phone footage of the dark, cold streets of Berlin. Written and filmed during a spell in the German capital in March 2017.
Here’s some music from my trio, Yellowbelly, featuring Will Butterworth on Piano and Marco Quarantotto on drums. I really love playing in this trio, it feels like the musical possibilities are endless. We’ve played so much together over the years and I’m hoping to find lots more opportunities to perform over the coming months. Find out more here.
