Steve Lawson is the UK leading solo bassist — former Bass Guitar Magazine cover star, Steve has been playing solo for 20 years, everywhere from The Royal Albert Hall to the Knitting Factory in LA. His solo work has also lead to numerous collaborations, most recently with Divinity Roxx, Reeves Gabrels, Tanya Donelly and Beardyman amongst many others. He's released somewhere in the region of 45 solo and collaborative albums, but lost count some time in 2012…
Midlands bass legend Dave Clark has been a regular on the scene for 25 years, touring with Surinder Sandhu, Alvin Stardust, The Contours, Chairman of the board and gigging in pretty much every pop style imaginable. Dave returns to Birmingham Bass Night with his much-loved looping piano/bass experimental duo, the Rowberry/Clarke project.
UK bassist Russ Sargeant uses his instruments, along with technology and effects, to create beautiful, layered music. His work has been described as “wonderfully immersive” and “subtle layers of sound that emerge gracefully like cinematic soundtracks”.
Solo bassist and soundscapist Kevin Buckland — AKA An ending ascend — brings his beautiful laptop-powered, eBow laden ambient textures to Birmingham Bass Night. Currently studying for a Masters in experimental composition and sound art, Kevin’s musical journey takes the listener on a rich and rewarding ride through a world of mellow organic electronica.
