I am the Bass player for bands Teeth Machine and Monzanto Sound. I have done Sessions/Collaborated and/or live bass work for, Black Bordello, Natty Wylah, Syd Nukuluk, Hugo Cottu, Chad The Polymath, Monika Linkyte, Moses Boyd, Mali-I, Kwazi Cort, Saint Saviour, Santino Le Saint, Otta, Ed Baden-Powell (D'Influence), Cody Currie, Kaonefy.
I have recorded and worked alongside award-winning producer and jazz musician Moses Boyd as a part of Roundhouse Rising Sounds 2019 with Monzanto Sound. In 2020 the song "Open Flower" produced by Moses Boyd was released By Rhythm Section International on their 5-year anniversary compilation "Shouts". In addition, I have toured/played live with artists Black Bordello, Natty Wylah, Monzanto Sound, and Teeth Machine supporting the likes of The Libertines, Vels Trio, Jeru The Damaja, Pete Doherty & Frédéric Lo, and Sorry. I also have experience recording at recording studios such as Snorkel Studios, Konk Studios, Studio 13, Rhythm Section Studios, Press Play Studios, and Abbey Road Studios.
I have worked professionally as a session/live bass guitarist for 10 years now, I worked as an in-house bassist for Lana Banana Studios for five years, where I learned a lot about playing (I'm still learning!), collaborating, and recording bass on other artists' songs. My style and sound are often compared to the era of the 60s, 70s, and 90s, especially with the Gibson SG bass. Particularly because of my warm, and round bass tone, Jamerson-Esque syncopation, and Can-Inspired chordal/melodic basslines. I naturally play bass with my fingers but I am also well-versed in using a pick/bow. I’m up for giving any song a go, drop me a message if your interested!

For me, the most exciting part of writing a new song, is knowing that I will be sending it to Anthony! He is the most incredible bass player and I just love working with him.
I live in Scotland now and Anthony lives in England but we still work together remotely on any new releases that I have.
He’s the best session musician I have ever worked with.
I have played with Anthony for a good 6/5 years now. He is by far one of the best musician i've had the pleasure to work with. His understanding of pocket, harmony and melody is incredible. He is extremely creative and can play anything asked, all while putting his own flair into it. Truly amazing player, highly recommend.
Anthony and I have been playing in bands and done studios sessions together for the last 5 years and he is second to none when it comes to creativity and pocket. I cannot recommend him enough! He is an absolute beast.
Anthony is a wonderful bassist, I have seen and heard him play in many different musical situations and he always manages to fit perfectly, with a really creative and honest approach to texture and redefining the position of a bass player: An exciting and innovate musician whom I recommend 100%
From straight up funk to haunting ambience, and anything in between. Anthony is extremely fun and easy to work with. If you’re looking for somebody with an open mind and ounces of creativity, he’s your guy. One of the finest players I’ve worked with.
