Session Bassist, Composer, Producer


I am a session bassist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer based in Nottingham, UK.

I play bass in a covers and jazz trio called The Littletones, in a disco funk band called The Disco Prophets, and in a jazz noir quartet called The Roka Ensemble. I also play trumpet in a funk rock band called Boss Magnet. Previous projects include playing bass in contemporary soul band Scarlet Ridge with whom I toured Europe in 2015, and producing my own long running solo electronic project qxtc.

In 2007 and 2008 I was a stage manager on the Drystone Stage (2nd Stage) at Solfest Music Festival in Cumbria.

From 2007 to 2013 I was one third of The Musical Stones of Skiddaw Players, a trio setup to perform music on The Musical Stones of Skiddaw, an antique lithophone (tuned percussion instrument made from stone) based in Keswick, Cumbria. Touring highlights include performing at Millenium Galleries, Sheffield, and on the shores of Derwent Water lake in Cumbria.

As a composer and producer I have written music for percussion duet, performed in 2005 by Adrian Spillet and Mark Norman, and had my music has been used in documentary films in Chile and the USA (American Artifact).
