— ABOUT —
Hi I am Jools, London based bass player. I started my musical journey when I was just 5 years old, playing a small cheap drumkit, then moved onto keyboard and eventually to piano and undertaking classical studies at the age of 7.
After several years of Mozart, Chopin, Bach, Debussy, I thought I wanted to implement my musical knowledge and I felt the need to pick up the bass as my next instrument. Probably discovered its main function when I was twelve but I managed to buy my first one at the age of 16, and then start to lessons.
In 2010 I carried on my studies at BIMM where I got a BA HONS in Professional Musicianship by 2013.
Since my moving in the UK I have been playing with several bands, so many gigs, and so many different genres… therefore each show and recording session made me always a more confident and aware musician.
The more I played the more I understood that my main purpose was playing for the song and trying to enhance its beauty, and being a bass player, giving that kind of solid foundation and dictating the chord progression.
As the search of the right tone and having the right sound is crucial in what I do, I thought to expand my knowledge in the lower spectrum of frequencies playing synthbass and Ukubass… and expand my versatility singing BVs too.
At the moment I am playing for few local London based artists and I recorded an album with my own original band, due to release.
If you want to find out more about my playing check the “media” and “video” section.
Having said that, thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you on stage…or in the studio control room!
