Job Title: Company Director

About me: 

"My first instrument was the drums, I started playing at 14 when I got my first kit. I played in my first band at 17 and it was at this time when I started to pick up the bass guitar at rehearsals. At 18 I bought my first bass guitar and that was the start of this journey I now find myself on. I played in bands for thirty years and switched to bass full time back in the 1990s. I have worked in many aspects of the music industry from instrument distribution to PA hire"
