The new record by Marcella O’Sullivan is out. It is called ‘Wood of the Pilgrims’ and I’m very pleased to have been able to contribute bass to two tracks. Featuring Marcella (of course!) alongside Christophe, Harry, Adam Downey and Adam Sinclair of the Rubber Wellies among others. Here’s the opening track for you to listen to right now. If you like it check out the album and drop Marcella a message – I know she’d be thrilled to hear from you. Enjoy!
Been really enjoying learning this solo over the last couple of weeks. It’s a great example of a spacious, groovy and tasteful bass solo by one of the masters of the instrument! Head over to the solo transcriptions page to check it out.
‘Altitude’ the new single by Joy Atlas has been premiered on the ‘Line of Best Fit’ blog. Check it out!
As I’ve been building up my pedal board in the last few months I’ve dealt with various custom pedal builders with great results…so I wanted to give a bit of a shout out to:
These guys have all been great with communication and delivery and their pedals are super well built and perform really well. Massively recommend all of them. Go forth and spend some money!
PS I’m not endorsed by any of these companies (I wish I was), it’s just my opinion / personal experience.
Been a bit tardy in posting about this….better late that never though! So, the new Pimptones album Go Deep is out and its a belter! Available on CD, vinyl or download. Go check it out!
