Welcome to my website!
I'm Dan - an electric & upright bass player based in Sussex.
I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Professional Musicianship in 2008, and ever since I've been lucky enough to work as a musician, arranger and orchestrator.
I feel very much at home playing in the studio, in the orchestra pit or on the stage at stadium level concerts.
My specialties are pop, funk, gospel, R&B, theatre and jazz.
Some artists I've worked with include:
Donny Osmond, Imelda Staunton, Jim Broadbent, Dawn French, Alexandra Burke, Elaine Page, Pixie Lott, Peter Andre, The Proclaimers, Julian Clary, Sir Derek Jacobi, Sharon D. Clarke, Jason Donovan, Jim Carter, Buddy Greco, Craig Revel-Horwood, Diversity, Michelle Dockery, Clive Rowe, Liane Carroll, 911, Ray Lewis (The Drifters), Jaki Graham, John Cameron, Chico, Sonia, Bucks Fizz, Angie Brown, Kym Mazelle, Joe Stilgoe,
Magic of Motown, FreshSteps UK, Dan Koek, Tom Fitzpatrick, and many more.
