About Me

I am a solo acoustic bassist, and I live in Wellington, NZ. I am not a great singer so I play instrumental music on bass. Some people have described what I do as “ambient”, “lyrical” or “cinematic”, some have described it as “folk”. There are probably some World Music elements thrown in there as well. Have a listen and see what you think.
