Meet The Band
Like most people I’ve always enjoyed listening to music but as a kid I never had the patience to learn an instrument.
Growing up my hobbies were sports, art and reading.
When I was 18 I learned how to play acoustic guitar but it wasn’t until I was 22 and bought my first bass guitar that I discovered my true passion! A year later I did my first recording sessions, laying down 4 tracks for 2 artists.
Since then I’ve done a lot of band work, performing everything from alternative rock to reggae and country music.
Most recently I’ve been performing with Synergy, an acoustic band that plays a lot of Latin and Flamenco music at venues all throughout the Birmingham and Shropshire areas, as well as with Fuego Nights, playing plugged in Latin music as well as a lot of English classics in a variety of genres.
Apart from this I am studying for a degree in music performance at the University of Wolverhampton and give private tuition in bass guitar and music theory in a steadily growing business.
When it comes to bass playing, my major influences are Jaco Pastorius and James Jamerson.
I have had many passions come and go but music is something that never left me.
Coming from a very mixed background with an American father and English mother but being raised in Spain gave me a love for world music, specialy Spanish Rumba and the Mediterranean sound.
My passion to discover and learn different styles has lead me to perform all sorts of styles from Flamenco to soul and compose everything from basanovas to Rock and Roll!
My biggest influences are Jason Mraz, Alejandro Sanz, John Mayers, and anyone else who can put poetry to music and make it beautiful but still catchy and fun.
