Now with over 10 years professional experience, I have been gigging and recording since my teens. 

I’ve played with multiple artists: Treetop Flyers, Florence Welch, John 'Rhino' Edwards (Status Quo, Dexys), Holly Macve, Sparkadia and others. I’ve recorded in Malibu with acclaimed producer Noah Georgeson and have toured the UK, Europe, and USA extensively.

My playing style? People tell me that I have a great ‘ear’ and can pick up a new tune straightaway. I can serve the song in most styles and genres - producing a real signature sound that’s rooted in funk, R&B and rock. And I have a strong voice for harmonies and backing.

As a songwriter I’ve co-written an album with a signed band. My music has been featured in adverts, tv shows and in the film ‘Dumb and Dumber To’ 
Things Will Change’ - check it out!)

Although the bass is my weapon of choice, I’m more than competent on guitar, drums, trumpet and harmonica.

Currently I'm playing with The RPJ Band as well as doing session work, and fronting my own events band, The Thamesmen.
