Now this is what I call a ‘gold medal finish’. My first time at Metropolis Studios was a time I’ll never forget. Two days, 24hrs of tracking bass and various other things for the new The United Kingdom album. Check out the size of this bass too…?! It’s HUGE.

PHOTO TIME

Here are some photos from Emily’s video shoot! I don’t think I’ve ever looked so country?!

I had the pleasure of trekking all the way across London with my Alembic Classico and it was VERY worth it. I was in a video shoot for Emily Faye’s new single, ‘Giving In’.

Here’s a very cool snap that is from yesterday! There’s no wrong time or place to get a practice in!

The video should be out in the first week of April so I’ll keep you posted!

My new Jazz trio, The Afternoon Project, has its first gig in London on Sunday 11th March. We’re playing a bar in Soho, Norman’s Coach and Horses (I’m so close to Ronnie’s, I think it’s the next street). We’re playing two sets and I’ll be using my NS Omnibass because it’s light and portable. It still gives that great upright bass sound. It’s fantastic. Here’s a photo from my rehearsal the other night.

Look at this vibey crowd shot from Emily Faye’s gig at The Half Moon, Putney! It’s such fun gigging with this lot! I always love using the Classico also, there’s really no bass like it!

 

There’s never a wrong time or place for funk, especially on a double bass!! That T-Shirt is fairly cool too!

I’ve been pretty busy this week, I’m doing a lot of gigging, rehearsing and busking.

I had a gig with Emily Faye on Saturday 4th March at the Tooting Tram and Social in London.

I took my Alembic Classico on its first ever gig with me and it was flipping awesome! I’ll never truly get over the fact I own such a masterpiece.

I suggest headphones when listening to this clip!

Check out this rehearsal footage with Emily Faye! Pretty funny stuff…! This is our prep for our gig on March 4th at the Tooting Tram and Social in Tooting. We play at 9:45pm!

 

I’m working on a few special things with my Alembic Classico! It’s such a magnificent piece of craftsmanship. I’m doing a lot of recording at the moment too! It’s all exciting stuff.

Check out this cool shot.

Here are some other pictures of the Classico, my dad is poking about in the electronics.

ALEMBIC CLASSICO

Never would I have thought I’d be the owner of an Alembic Classico electric upright bass but there you go. It’s honestly so magical and beautiful and I’ve not stopped playing it. I’ve got some videos on youtube to please check them out.

I hope to be gigging with it very soon, I’ll keep you posted. Time to get practicing anyway, yet another skill to learn…!
