I’ve been a pro musician for over 30 years. I’m the bassist with UK band Jamiroquai, but have also enjoyed sharing stages and studios with many great bands and singers. Here is an insight into what I’ve done in the past, and what I’m currently involved with.
TVs, Festivals & Venues
I joined the band in early 2005 and have played on all recordings and gigs since, as well as some co-writing. What a great band, I love it… what more is there to say… See Galleries for pictures, video and interviews (where I do say more).
As much as I love the interaction recording with others in the same room, I do record at home too. Obviously that’s been more common lately and I have some cool gear and the advantage of all my guitars to hand.
I am a visiting professor or lecturer at many of the music colleges in the UK and Europe eg: BIMM, Royal Northern College of Music, Leeds Conservatoire, LIPA, LCCM, WaterBear, ACM. I’ve held masterclasses and clinic events in many other countries too, as well as my residential ‘bass camps’ for Elite Music Camps. I also do lessons via video call where I offer tuition that is adapted to suit individual needs. Whether you are a beginner looking for good habits and enjoyable progress, or an advanced player wanting to fine tune other areas.
I started Trioniq with my Jamiroquai bandmate, Rob Harris, and Iwan VanHetten of The Brooklyn Funk Essentials. We like old records, especially 70s era. Original soulful funk, written by the 3 of us and recorded honestly, to capture performance, like the records we love. We have released music on the usual streaming platforms, filmed live studio performances and aim to play cool festivals around the universe. We currently have a coloured vinyl (inc download code), titled ‘One Deux Tres’ available via QRates and CDs are now also available. Follow us at @Trioniqofficial on social media for updates.
This is a guitar, bass, drums & vocal band that brings vibe and energy to any party, with “in your face” covers and re-works. We groove hard, so if you have the energy to dance all night, you will like it!
