Andy-O'Neil-Music-Bass-Player-session-muscian-london-wayward-compass-live-and-studio-pics

Andy O’Neil is a musician that wears many hats; he works as both a live and studio session musician, as a music producer/engineer from his recording studio in Chelsea, London (Wayward Compass), and tutors guitar and bass privately as well as being subcontracted to schools and academies.

Andy studied Jazz and Contemporary music at the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts.

Recently re-located from Perth, Australia to London, he has a vast resume from the last 10 years working as a professional musician. Including tours of Australia, Malaysia, and a plethora of local gigs over the years, highlights have also included opening for classic Aussie/NZ acts including Choir Boys, Dragon, Mark Seymore, and Daryl Braithwaite.

Andy’s always looking for new artists to work with, if you feel he’d be a good fit you can get in touch via email (andyoneil@live.com.au) phone (07788 907 182) or visit his facebook page here.
