Exciting news!  I’ve been interviewed for Groove - an unedited podcast delving into my little solo bass world.  It was super fun talking to host Mitch Joel about all things bass and all things YouTube.  Groove is awesome - they’ve also featured Victor Wooten, Michael Manring, Robert Trujillo (Metallica) and many other amazing bassists, so this is quite a big honour for me.

2014 was a great year. I was honored to be selected the #7 Reader Favourite on the massive bass website NoTreble (Victor Wooten was 4th and Jaco 1st so it was awesome to be in such company).  I also had a video that was one of the 10 most popular videos of the year on the site.  NoTreble and its fans have always been amazing supporters of my music - many thanks to them and everyone who supports what I do! (Feb 2015)


FREE TABS AVAILABLE NOW!

Tabs for my covers of Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven' and Eric Clapton's 'Tears in Heaven' are now available as free Bonus Content at Bassline Publishing!  Just take 30 seconds to create a username/password on the website and you'll have complete access to them. Please note: though my 'Tears in Heaven' arrangement is not tuned E, A, D, G, it is still tuned in standard fourths, so the arrangement can essentially be thought of as in standard tuning.  Therefore, you can read the tabs without altering anything on your bass.   (Sept 2013)

Updating 'Latest News':

In the context of what I do music-wise, August has been a great month for me.  I've never had a video reach 100,000 views in one week before (in fact, my videos rarely ever reach 100,000 views!), and in August, crazily, it happened twice!  It makes me so happy to know people are enjoying these solo bass arrangements, and I've tried to update this section of my website over the past couple weeks to try to include some of the nice things that have happened recently.  Many thanks again to everyone who is supporting what I do!

(August 2013)

Recently, I received a message from a supporter who told me my Adele video is on the front page of the popular Mexican news site, Expreso Querétaro, this just after finding out it was shared on the famous French website, Spi0n!  So at the moment I'm feeling really lucky to live in this digital age where you can share your music with people around the world, and I'm extremely grateful that people from different countries are enjoying my 'Someone Like You' arrangement  :-)    (August 2013)

I'm very appreciative for all the amazing support I've received on Reddit this month - thanks, guys! (Though, after being exposed to the awesomeness of all the subreddits, I'm not getting much work done: as other Redditors of course know, it's addictive!)   (August 2013)
