Touring and recording bass player with indie rock and roll band The Wave Pictures (favourites of Marc Riley on BBC Radio 6). Nearly 20 years as a professional musician, used to learning songs quickly and by ear, and happy playing all of the genres that make up classic popular music: rock and roll, pop, garage rock, country, folk, classic rock, indie, loud, quiet, fast or slow.

The Wave Pictures have released many albums (too many to count) on Moshi Moshi Records, and toured for years. Mostly in Europe, then the UK, and then the US. I have also played live and recorded with many other artists and bands including the legendary Daniel Johnston (see photos), Wild Billy Childish, The Surfing Magazines (Moshi Moshi Records), Jeffrey Lewis (anti folk king), Pete Astor (previously of The Weather Prophets), Stanley Brinks (ex Herman Dune) and Darren Hayman (previously of Hefner).

Mandolin work with The Wave Pictures and also Jeffrey Lewis.

I am available for studio work in and around London, or further afield if costs are covered. I am happy improvising quickly or taking more time to work out arrangements as required, and am open to playing any kind of music. I am open to playing live as well.
