Paterson’s playing on several instruments is deft and admirably suits the material”

Bruce Crowther (Jazz Journal)

Simon Paterson

Professional upright and electric bassist

Simon studied music at Nottingham after which he toured Europe with a funky jazz-fusion band in the heyday of Acid Jazz. Having played on proper big stages at e.g. Glastonbury, and proud of his two minor UK Top 40 successes, he has since recorded and played bass with a huge collective noun of renowned and/or phenomenal jazz musicians, which is true, has composed music for stage and screen and is a respected music producer and recording engineer. Great bio writer too!

One of the region's most in demand bassists, in 2020 he has performed with the likes of Tony Kofi, Dennis Rollins, Mellow Baku, Marcus Joseph, Joel Purnell, Stewart McDonald, Nathan Bray and more. 

Currently, Simon is writing and playing with Trio Con Alma, Thom Whitworth Trio, Sharp Little Bones, Counter (with Joe Egan), completing remixes and looking forward to recording a new album to reflect the current exciting aesthetic of Angels in the Architecture.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch to say “hello” and/or if you want to discuss gig bookings, remixes, productions and/or bass playing!
