So about me, well I started on the violin aged 7, piano at 9. Got through some grades with both but picked up the bass guitar when I was 15, I lovely pink Westfield bass (inspired by Mark Hoppus from Blink 182). I got the bass to start a band with my friends and thus Sethway was born. I played with the band for 7 years touring all over the UK and Ireland and playing a showcase in sunny Hollywood, USA. Touring and studios were for me, it was then I knew that is what I wanted.
I have played many shows with many different artists. Amos, Brash Isaac, Lore and the Ulster Orchestra. Playing iconic venues such as the Limelight and Custom House Square in Belfast, The Islington in London, Whelan’s in Dublin and SIR Studios in LA. I am a genre crossing bassist, playing everything from pop to musicals to classical to jazz to rock. I have got Grade 8 qualifications in both Double and Electric Bass and a Grade 5 in Music Theory.
I have taught students of all abilities the joys of bass! I am super excited to do the same with you!
Tell me what you want to know! I want to help you get to where you want to go. Grades? You got it! Jamming with your favourite tunes? Sorted!
It is all about you, I want to help you get to where you want to be!
