From intimate shows, to arenas and festivals and also live and pre-recorded TV appearances all over the world (BBC, VH1, MTV to name but a few), its not just the audio quality that Carl focuses on. One of the joys of this job that you might hear him talking about, is the array of outfits that are required.

One of the things that makes Carl unique is his charismatic on-stage presence and the ability to blend in or stand out when needed. He has touring and playing experience spanning two thirds of the world, countless hours of studio, writing, recording and filming under his belt. When it comes to supplying someone with that key bassline or synth track, Carl records and works out of ‘Bright Lights’ Studio – currently situated just West of London. This is also where private lessons are held, but please use the contact form (subject to availability).

As well as obtaining a degree in Music Performance, in London, UK, Carl has been a writer for Bass Musician Magazine, with a range of new articles out in 2017.

As an active songwriter, Car has worked with many artists both on location (worldwide) and at his studio. He has become an asset to any professional musical outfit, be it a long term relationship, or a brief encounter.

2017 saw Carl become a part of the established musical outfit that are Undying Inc, based in New Delhi, India. Undying Inc have been together for over 12 years and Carl’s addition brings a new chapter to the Tech-Metalers.

As a founding member of the Rock/Pop/Punk outfit Armada Of Secrets, Carl loves to let his creativity fly free. He says that is where his ‘soul bleeds’. Check out some of his chest-pounding bass lines…. if you can gain access to the music www.armadaofsecrets.com.

As an endorsee of many musical companies, Carl has been supported in the development of his career. He enjoys being a representative for these companies and regularly performs at NAMM and the London Bass Show. 2013/14 saw Carl presenting clinics and masterclasses all over Europe, America and Asia.
