RWP Student Simon Topping from the band ‘The Affirmative’ receives Plymouth Herald recognition!

2017 saw the result of a number of RWP Bass Tuition Student Clientele getting into bands through their hardwork and dedication, with many setting this as their goal for 2018/2019 which is awesome!  It’s always particularly rewarding though when ‘others’ recognise what we do out there, and in turn take the time to get in touch – hence posting below Clare Robinson’s review from the Plymouth Herald.  Well done Si and keep it coming everyone as I have a good feeling about 2018!!!!! :O)

If you would like to get your hands on a copy of Si’s debut album ‘Splendid’, then simply click on the band camp link below to download.  Having the absolute pleasure of working with Si on his bassline parts (he did all the handwork) gave me the unique opportunity of understanding why he wanted things a certain way on the album thus in the end not being able to get the songs out of my head!  A world class musician said to me a number of years ago “if you can’t get it out of your head, that’s a great thing!”  Si’s album is exactly that – he’s managed to create something a little special that doesn’t sound like anything else, now that to me is a sign of a true artist……
