I started playing bass aged 13ish. I have played in a number of local bands over the last 22 years ranging from Synopsis - covering rock standards in local pubs in Tiverton - to Funkenstein - a full costume disco band playing large functions all over the Southwest - and everything in between (yes, including that acid jazz fad in the 1990s).
Over the years, I have been on a quest to find smaller, lighter and yet punchier equipment because there is nothing worse than constantly moving around an 80kg full bass stack! I'm currently using a Markbass Mini CMD121P combo with a Markbass Traveller 121H extension cab for larger venues.
I also enjoy bringing my love of tech into the band and experimenting with new ideas and gadgets to enhance the sound.
