If you’ve ever been to Premises Studios, you’ll know how exciting and fab it is! What an environment it is. I spent a day there recording some FUNK for Ray and Andrea. Check out my instagram post for some cool pictures! It was a pleasure sessioning and playing with some very skilled musicians.

It’s been a mad week! I’m currently back at university helping out in the exams so there’s not THAT much to post! I have spent a lot of time in the studio at BIMM London and here’s a cool snap to show you!

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Alembics really make my job easier! They are so smooth and ‘easy’ to play! WOW!

Lyra have been shooting a music video for the new tune S.T.A.Y which will be released soon. Here’s a somewhat candid photo, mid shoot of my bass and I! I’m eager to see the final cut, when I do, I’ll be sure to share it!

So for the the last two days, I tracked bass on 9 out 10 tracks for Bella McKendree’s new album! 2 DAYS FOR AN ALBUM…that’s some serious work! I laid down some groovy tracks and some pretty nice fills (my opinion) and the whole band sounded spectacular! I can’t wait for it to be finished!

P.s. for recording, if available, definitely use a 5 string bass! Those low B’s, C’s and D’s add so much depth and energy to songs when used sparingly! My 5 got me out of some tricky not stretches too…so that’s always a bonus when recording!

Take a look at my quick insta video of the studio!

The United Kingdom have another single out and ready to stream! It’s called, ‘Tomorrow’s Supposed to Rain’. I’m super proud of everybody involved, what a sound. Thanks to Buffalo Studios in Limehouse for tracking and recording us.

I’ve been into the studio!! I laid down some grooving bass for The United Kingdom! We have two new records being mastered as I type and I can’t wait to share them with you. We recorded at Buffalo Studios in Limehouse…WHAT A PLACE!

Our photographer took some wicked snaps of myself playing a Hofner bass, a first for me! The bass sounds great and the tracks are superb! STAY TUNED!

Thanks to David Whayman for the snaps!

My new Jazz trio – The Afternoon Project, went into the studio on Sunday to get a showreel of live jazz tunes recorded. What a day! Credit to these guys too, what wonderful musicians they are.
