Dominic Howles grew up in Jamaica, Hong Kong, and Somerset (UK). He is an experienced double bass and electric bass player and has worked with classical ensembles and well-known jazz artists including Tom­my Chase, Stacey Kent, Bobby Wellins, Don Weller, and Julian Siegel. Howles studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and has performed in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, on television, radio, and theater. He has undertaken, directed, and written various multimedia works and is well-respected as a composer and arranger. Howles’ own groups have performed successfully for many years. He is a first-class bass soloist and has an engaging sense of humor, which (…ahem…) is always useful when working with ukulele players. Howles lives in London.
