Bass Guitar ability

With 25 years keyboard/piano experience, & 10 years Guitar, Bass, Drums & Vocals under the belt, I am classically trained at a Grade 6 standard in all styles of music.
I have a pitch perfect ear, and using these instruments I am able to sight read sheet music, ad-lib or improvise in any band situation, as well as harmonise on the fly, using a 5 octave vocal range!!!
I can always recognise every instrument, chord progression, vocal, percussion & overdubs included in any composition, and recreate the song almost to the original sound, using Pro Tools & my own selection of instruments in my home studio.
I worked full-time at Melbourne Records in which I produced and engineered over 1,000 bands including Jet, Kisschasy, & Mike Patton.
From rock to metal, to pop music, to hip-hop, to soundtrack & foley work, we worked round the clock 7 days a week, and after serving 5 years I made the decision to pursue a new line of work.
I have created Jingles for TV & Radio, Commercials including Vodaphone, Yakult, & plenty more.
Frequent touring Solo act 'Random Ads' playing either covers and/or originals in all/any/every situation possible, which incorporates several instruments operated by the one person, keyboards, guitars, microphones, effects units and loop pedals combined to create an improvised, comedic, theatrical performance bound to captivate every audience and leave everyone entertained guaranteed.
Also part of a fantastic cover band 'Audiotherapy' with all instruemnts covered, every song replicated to a tee, and 4 part harmonies operated by 4 musicians. We are perfect for the most Prestige Corporate Events & Weddings to Parties, Clubs, Venues, Festivals, Bars & Pubs. The sound and performance is absolutely huge!!
