Ben Cook – bass guitar/vocals

Ben has wide ranging experience from acid jazz and soul to extreme metal via show music.
With a great ear and a reputation for learning fast, Ben is available for tracking, session and dep work.

He has a real passion for pushing his limits on the bass and is always looking for the next challenge. If you need someone genuinely engaged for your project, you’ve come to the right place!
As for vocals, Ben is something of a chameleon, able to adapt his voice for any setting with a strong baritone range that can be moulded for rock, soul or classical as well as a range of heavy metal grunts/growls; a range and adaptability that is ideal for most session needs.
