Depping is the new black

During my musical career I feel privalaged that I have constant been in the position to work with fantastic musicians. Being versatile, dependable and doing my home work has enabled me to take part in some excellent musical adventures. A desire to constantly learn and improve has pushed me to try and better myself and expand my horizons.

Right now I seem to be doing a fair few deps for all kinds of bands; from pro cover outfits through to pop bands like Miss 600 and independent artists. Although I continue to play with my own bands and projects I am really enjoying sitting in one one off and short term gigs. It’s a great way to improve and maintain my chops and keeps me on my toes. I also dig the flexibility that a non-monogynous career brings. I can do what I want and when I want to do it. Playing full time in just one band can some times end up becoming a very insular and monotonous process. Fifteen hours a day in a van with the same guys will do that to you.

Developing the skills and contacts to facilitate this career move has been a very natural process. I’m also very fortunate to have a wonderful and supportive partner who understands my need for a creative output.

As I’ve just been working with Miss 600 here’s a couple of their videos
