My aim is to play melodic music with a full and complete sound using my bass guitar.

All of my original compositions and arrangements are played on my ZON VB4 BASS with D'ADDARIO PICCOLO STRINGS (extremely light gauge strings that are very receptive to altered tunings and allow me to tune my bass to higher pitches). Essentially, piccolo strings can be tuned anywhere between standard bass tuning all the way up to the first four strings of a guitar. Altered tunings are a key part of my approach.

Musical background: I am lucky to have received cello lessons from a young age before switching to bass when I was 17 (ten years ago). I learned how to play by jamming along with my favorite rock bands. When I was in my early twenties, I discovered Michael Manring and Victor Wooten and was immediately drawn to the solo bass scene...

I hope you enjoy the music!
