Paul Housden

London, United Kingdom

Actor, Musician

I am an experienced session bass player and guitarist originally from Australia but now permanently based in London. I also sing and play keyboards in various projects. As person I'm easy going with a sense of humour. As a musician I'm easy to work with and have a great ear. I generally pick things up very quickly.

I have played with some of the best funk and pop session musicians in Melbourne and Sydney and have played bass on top 10 hits by acts such as The Whitlams and Belinda Emmett. As a bass player I'm known for having a great fat retro tone and a great natural groove. I also play psychedelic guitar and sing in my own projects Foxx on Fire and Paul Housden & The Futurists.

Current activities:

Bass and guitar with Smooth Sailors, a band that that is in demand for weddings and functions throughout the UK and Europe.

Member of Mowton/Soul band The Astrophonics.

Playing bass in the (Motown-style) house band at a member's club in Mayfair.

Singing and playing keyboards with a psychedelic rock band Duchamp Pilot. We perform at various festivals around Europe. The live show is accompanied by aerial performers suspended from a massive crane above the stage.

Playing and recording with my own band Foxx on Fire.

I'm looking for gigs with great musicians. I'm specifically interested in playing bass in an r'n'b/funk band with regular gigs.
