About Mat

Bass Guitarist
Warrington
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Bass player and singer. Years of experience playing in various live situations including weddings and corporate events. Regular session work

I gained a love for music at a very early age. Throughout my journey I have played various instruments from keyboards, woodwind instruments, drums and the ever popular guitar. However it was my love for the Bass guitar that drove me forward as a musician. This took me to the North West where I completed an undergraduate degree in Popular Music with English Literature at Chester University. I quickly become involved in various bands, regularly performing across the North West.

Mark H, 2 years ago

I have played with Mat for a number of years, he is a fantastic bass player with good groove and timing. He can play a number of different styles and genres, a great addition to any set up. He has a great ear for harmonies and a fantastic arranger.

I've played with Mat a few times and he's a fantastic bassist. He once filled in for my function band's bass player on four hour's notice and had the whole set learnt by the time the gig started! Can't ask for much more than that.
