Our music has received over 2.4 million Spotify streams and more than 1.4 million YouTube views to date. I'm very passionate about the role of the bass in a track and always put 100% of my energy and creativity into every recording I make.

I studied Jazz at music college but have always played many different styles including Funk, Fusion, Pop, Blues, Folk, Soul, Hip Hop and more. Check out the audio tab for some examples of my playing.

I am a bassist and guitarist living and working in London. Since graduating from Birmingham Conservatoire’s B.Mus jazz course I have been working as a performer, recording artist and instrumental tutor.

As a performer I have been involved with a wide variety of projects - from jazz bands to musical theatre productions. I'm very active on the UK music scene playing with various jazz, folk and fusion outfits including the popular high-energy band Lydian Collective. Our music has received over 2.4 million Spotify streams and more than 1.4 million YouTube views. Our debut album ‘Adventure’ reaching the top 10 in the iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Bandcamp Jazz charts within just days of its release.
