As you may know, I love showing off the basses I play and the various amps and setups I use. Here’s another one to add to the list.

Here’s a snap of my rig when LYRA played at legendary, Hope and Anchor in Islington. Thank the bass gods for lights on my bass because this place is extremely dark when playing…!

The Ashdown was the house amp and it sounded great. The bass, as always was clean sounding and FULL of tone.Β 52853990_10215480816231460_1717903011918905344_n.jpg

The Second Sons, as always aced it and blew the crowd away at The Troubadour away. Thanks to Tim Russell for these photos!

The chances are, I’ll be smiling with grooving!

 

The Second Sons have played some AMAZING shows recently at The Cavern and The Magic Garden! They were full, it was hot and sweaty and we played fantastically! Here are my bass solos from the nights of!

What a weekend!! I had the absolute joy of performing with Emily Faye at the British Country Music Association Awards in Harrogate! We played on a huge stage in the Harrogate Convention Centre…WOWZA!

The two pictures below are SUPERB! Thanks so much to Ian Morrall!

The Second Sons residency seems to go up a notch every month. This show was maybe the best so far, here are some snaps of my doing my thing! The ‘bass face’ photo library is growing…!

I JUST HAD THE BEST WEEKEND EVERΒ 

Emily Faye played Rochdale’s ‘Feel Good Festival’ and damn, what a crowd! I estimate around 2k in the audience, hard to tell but we played a super set! I just wish we could play it again, right now!

The Second Sons kicked off their residency at The Troubadour with a BANG. I’ve never played such a sweaty show though…!

I have some FAB pictures to show you, check ’em out.

 

BOONDOCKS FESTIVAL – THANK YOU!Β 

Emily Faye played a stunning set in the super hot weather! What a stage and what a day! Here’s a picture that shows just how well it went!!

Here’s a photo of my RIG too, wow…!!

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!
