Hello, I have recently been involved in this new TV show for ITV in the UK. It was really fun to play bass in the band, Vikki and the Heartbeats, and it will run for seven weeks on Saturdays at 7pm. Check out the first episode here on demand!
Here are a couple of livestreams I was involved in on the past few months in betwene national lockdowns, one with the brilliant Vanessa Haynes and one with Resolution 88, it was a real blast!
I have been meaning t do this for ages and have finally got it done with some video highlights of the past few years. Check it out here
With Maceo Parker in Paris, July 3rd 2019.
I am now able to offer online bass lessons to anyone in the world as long as you have an internet connection and laptop/tablet/smartphone with a camera. Please get in touch via the contact page to arrange your lesson.
Its looking like a fun filled, varied musical journey in 2019. The new Resolution 88 album is coming out with concerts to support the release, tour dates with Judge Jules live, gigs with Dennis Rollins and a special concert with Orphy Robinson at the love supreme festival with the Astral weeks project.
On top of those gigs there will be lots of fun parties and weddings with Swagger this summer which are always fun!
I will update the tour dates but highlights include:
Will add more dates to the tour dates page as soon as they are confirmed.
It’s been a long time since my last blog! 2015 was a good year, ending with some memorable gigs with Resolution 88 and guests and a couple of fun, creative improvised concerts with Cleveland Watkiss and Orphy Robinson in Cambridge and the Vortex in London.
The special Resolution 88, one off guest concerts with Soweto Kinch in London and the Cambridge Jazz festival gig featuring Dennis Rollins were a great success. They both added their unique voice to our music and gave the audience a spectacular, fun and sometimes mesmerising musical experience.
This year has lots of exciting projects and concerts in store, including a new Resolution 88 album. The recording process has begun and I will update you soon when we have a release date. We will also be supporting the release with tour dates to be announced soon.
It’s been a long while since I have posted a blog, but when you have a baby things get really busy 🙂 I have been mostly looking after the baby, doing lots of private gigs with Swagger and the odd jazz gig with different line ups and I also did a short support set for the Last Poets with Malik Al Nasir that was a lot of fun.
I wanted to share with you two upcoming concerts, the first being a fantastic tribute to Gil Scott-Heron with Malik and the OG’s. It will be held in Liverpools St. George’s hall, tickets are available here. There are many great acts and special guests as you can see from the poster below. It will be a historic event and I hope you can attend.
The other concert I am looking forward to very much is the Resolution 88 with Special guest Soweto Kinch. We will be performing in London on the 27th of September, tickets are available here, it should be a memorable night.
Many thanks, I will report back with pictures from both gigs.
Its been a while since the last post, its been a busy time in my life! I just wanted to share this upcoming date with you. I will be playing with Resolution 88 as part of a double bill with Kaidi Tatham at Ronnie Scotts in London on June the 10th. For tickets and more info click here.
Here is a video from our last sold out show at Pizza Express in London:
It’s been a very busy February and March looks even busier with some exciting gigs and clinics coming up.
I have just got back from Girona in Spain with Myles Sanko, where we opened the great Black Music Festival. It was a fantastic show, to a great audience as usual in Spain. They really like to sing along and get involved which makes the gig so much better!
Coming up this week, I will be playing a gig and taking part in a recording masterclass with the great Don Grusin. The gig is free to get in and there is a very limited number of tickets for the masterclass, more info here.
Finally, I will be at the London Bass Guitar show on Sunday hanging out and checking out some great concerts and masterclasses at the show.
See you there.
Hello and happy new year! I have had a great 2014 and a fantastic holiday at the end of it, hence the late post.Last year was a very good year for me, I have been blessed with some great experiences, and part of some wonderful shows. Highlights of 2014 include the Hustlers Convention show at the Jazz Cafe (the documentary of that gig should be released sometime soon). Also at the Jazz Cafe, the album launch for Myles Sanko’s second album Forever Dreaming was incredible, sold out and lots of fun! Another great highlight was doing a masterclass in Dresden, Germany as part of the unique and truly fantastic Dresden drum and bass festival. It was a blast and I made new friends and learnt a few things from the great musicians at the festival. Thanks again to Warwick bass for supporting me in 2014!
2015 is looking like a great year again and has started with a tour of the Netherlands with Myles Sanko. I have added some dates that are coming up to the tour dates page. I am looking forward to going back to the Blue Note in Milan in March, this time with Myles Sanko and playing for the first time at Pizza Express Jazz club in London with Resolution 88!
