Aiming high with the low notes. Tapping the Flow with Ben Ellis.
I sat down to chat with Scottish bassist Ben Ellis who holds the low end together for the likes of Iggy Pop, Marc Almond, Swervedriver, and many more. We had a fantastic chat about what it takes to get where you want to get to and how to navigate the ups and downs of the game.
Ben also went straight after the challenge of coming up with a song for the show and graces the tape with his vocals for the first time with his own material. Its a wonderful moment and really holds a candle to the canvas as some fresh paint falls to dry in a new form.
For anyone interested in the world of session playing whist also retaining a sense of your own style this is the chat for you. Ben is a total pro and a lovely fella to hang out with.
