Carl Aylward Keyboardist

I am an experienced keyboard player, having played since the age of 11. I am actively seeking gigging projects.

My general style is that of a keyboardist/synthesist, and although I am not a piano player, I play most piano parts competently.  My main strengths is in having a  very strong lead solo playing style. Additionally, I generally use contrasting sounds for each hand part, e.g. orchestral/organ, piano/strings etc, in order to fill out the overall sound, rather than clash with the bass player's/guitar player's parts. Additionally, I have often worked as a joint split hands keyboardist and bass player, in bands not requiring the expense and stage room of a separate bass player.

I am a dedicated professional in attitude and ability, however, I only play for pleasure, and subsequently do not partake in any rumination for any engagements, excepting direct fuel transportation costs to gigs.
