The Artist - On Bass they call me "CC"
Born in the US and raised in Germany during my fathers military posting there.
It was where the dream started.“ I was on stage, playing. When I woke up, I wanted to experience, what I felt in the dream.”
This inspired me to teach myself to play guitar after being turned on to Jimi Hendrix.
Upon the family’s return to California I discovered my true calling. “I saw someone slapping the bass” and commenced a five hour a day bass habit.
At the age of 19 my band signed a 6 figure production deal earning $300 each a week and providing us our own studio with 2 engineers and any equipment we wanted to create and record original music as a day job.
We recording an album at San Francisco’s prestigious Wally Heider Studio with several well known featured artists.
This experience gave me the studio production skills, I incorporates into producing Artists, composing for Documentaries, Games, Animation and releasing my original music in the self tilted genre of “EuroFunk”,
My unique blend of styles from my early Afro American beginnings in Blues and Soul through to my exploration of Funk, Rock and Improvised Groove.
My shows feature original compositions from various points of my decades-spanning career as an international artist, either performing, recording or opening concerts for the likes of Santana,
Joe Cocker, Kool & The Gang, Frankie Beverly & Maze, The Supremes, Marcia Hines, John Farnham, James Blundell, Irwin Thomas, Jimmy Barnes, Larry Graham of Sly & the Family Stone and Will Calhoun of Living Colour and many others...
