I’ve also done a fair bit of Theatre work, starting with various panto productions for Blue Genie, then Enchanted Entertainment.  In 2010-11 lucky enough to do many deps for Russ Kennedy performing with the renowned theatre touring show; Beyond The Barricade.

A few sessions along the way; Radio 2 Choir Girl of the Year, a few jingles but my favourite session was with cult 80’s band, 1000 Mexicans performing on their great track Chance of a Lifetime.

My early career was dominated by my teaching schedule.  This eventually led me to write 3 tutor books on bass playing.

I’m also a sound engineer and run a PA hire and sound services business.  Click the ‘extras’ tab top right of each page for links to my other activities.
