I had the pleasure of talking to Jason Heath: The worlds premier double bass journalist! We mainly chat about what i've been getting up to during the coronavirus lockdown but I also managed to admit that I can't play a certain Neilsen symphony. Go and have a listen and check out his other interviews with the biggest names in the bass world.

Like every other musician in the world I'm stuck at home with plenty of time to practice which is actually pretty nice. Unfortunately there are many people with real jobs putting themselves at risk for there benefit of others, particularly in the NHS. 

I've been doing my clapping for the NHS and now I've recorded a very short version of Over The Rainbow for the #overtherainbowNHS. Loving all the other videos out there.

Pandora's Jukebox have been in the studio recently. Why not have a quick look at my media page for a sneak peak at what we have been working on. I'm really happy with the new rig and pedal board, It sounds particularly good on our cover of Waiting All Night by Rudimental.

I’ve just received a brand new Sire by Marcus Miller P7 bass guitar. Finally I can add a P-bass to my collection. 

I’m so impressed by what you get for such a relatively small price. Once I’ve put some tape wounds on it it will be good to go! 

Definitely check them out 


Anyway, enough from me, I want to go and play with my new toy!

I’m just home from a few weeks away in the Cayman Islands. While I was there I had the pleasure of being invited to talk to the members of the Cayman Youth Orchestra about life as a musician.

Cayman Youth Orchestra is an exciting new project set up by my friend and fellow bass player Ian Emerson and is the first of its kind on Grand Cayman. 

I was particularly impressed by the number of double bass players involved!

Wishing everyone involved the best of luck with their upcoming concerts. I hope to...
