Multi-instrumentalist, live-looper, jazz funk bassist Dr Funk brings busking into the 2020s. He makes the four-string sing. He surfs. His dream is to own a 67 Mustang Fastback. He’s not actually a doctor. Dr Funk lives to play the bass. That’s really all you need to know. Slapping, popping, strumming, riffing, he elevates the humble rhythm instrument to levels of melody and showmanship that are more commonly associated with the lead guitar. Inspired by legendary bassists – Marcus miller, Victor Wooten, Louis Johnson – Funk is the type of player who could jam on a groove for hours, building it up with his loop machine and keys. Fellow musicians stop and play with him. Crowds gather. Intrigued ears fished by Funk’s playing, pausing and taking time out to enjoy a stranger’s soundtrack.

It’s here, in these improvised moments, where we see and hear the future of Dr Funk. Constantly writing, he’s gradually building his own repertoire with releases and collaborations planned throughout 2021. Capturing the magic of his impromptu performances but taking them to much bigger stages, and taking the artform to exciting new places, Dr Funk continues to stop you in your tracks.
