My vocal range is from C2 to C5. It allows me to sing some bass lines and all bariton and tenor lines. Singing a wide variety of songs, different music genres and keys provides me with all the required skills to adapt fast and easily to the new songs. Sight reading is obliged for singing in a choir which I have been a member of for many years, so it has showed to be a very useful skill in the situations when I ougth to sing using partitures and/or when time is limited to rehears a composition thoroughly. I can sing as a backing vocal performer but my vocal strength and specific and characteristic color of my voice (and range, of course) has always led me to the role of a lead singer all these years.
I play a five-string bass guitar as well as a six-string acoustic or electric guitar. Although I has have changed a lot of different guitar manufacturer brands, I am still in the process of searching for the ideal ones. At the moment I am using Washburn guitars and Ibanez active five-string bass guitar, all playing through Fender amps.
More than thirty years of singing and playing a bass and an acoustic/electric guitar. I had been playing rock and pop music for fifteen years exclusively. Then, as my musical knowledge and skills developed, I started to perform a variety of other music genres and styles including, amongst the others, jazz, funk, world and so called “evergreen” music. Throughout the years I have been performing in very many different places and venues, and in front of small audiences as well as audiences counting more than twenty thousand people - from small local clubs, hotels, private gigs, corporate events etc, to a wide open crowded spaces, on big stages. Nowadays, I am a member of a few bands playing and singing different repertoires and I am very interested in broadening my experience by playing and singing around Europe and further if it is possible, in collaboration with musicians from all around the world.
My repertoire counts over 1,200 songs in different music genres. From the most popular jazz standards and top of the charts hits through decades in the UK and USA, to popular songs from France, German, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, Russia and ex-Yu republics.
