"Music For DVD. WOW!"

WOW! To say that "freedomfaction" (Danny M Stewart-Smith's production company) exceeded expectations, adopted a very professional and helpful approach, produced a polished product and were diligent in time & budget merely...reflects the limitations of the English language. During the bidding stage of this engagement, freedomfaction immediately distinguished themselves from all other bidder?s by sending a sample of what they thought I might be looking for and asking insightful questions. (This was in contrast to: four vendors lecturing me that my fee proposal was too low; several vendors submitting a desultory ?pre-fab? bid; 2-3 other bidders actually asking a question regarding my project; and a few other bids that missed the mark for other reasons.) During the engagement, freedomfaction was communicative and responsive to my suggestions and requests. Candidly, I thought it would be impossible to describe the music score I had in mind via Emails. The fact that freedomfaction interpreted my comments and produced a score that manifested my objectives is a tribute to their competency and ability. When next I need a musical score, there?s only one place I expect to go: freedomfaction. - Private Client

My story so far.....Dabbled with piano as a kid, with guitar as a teenager and then I fell in love with bass after hearing the likes of Jaco, Chris Squire, Patittucci, at the age of 19. I became a professional bassist at the age of 21 playing regular gigs around the Midlands in the UK.
Moved to London at 24 to pursue more musical options and attend university. I was lucky enough to play African Pop, Indian Music, Reggae, Funk, DnB, Jazz, Blues, RnB, Hip-Hop and even Japanese music with various artists in that cosmopolitan cultural diversity AKA London. Every one I worked with influenced me in some way. I learned a lot through the process and now it manifests in my composition and production work.
What sets me apart from anyone else is hard to say because I am me, but I do have a unique background, I am diverse, imaginative and infinitely creative and able to bring my ideas across autonomously. I aim to, and hope I will be performing live music more, but I know I will be writing and publishing music till the day I die!
I can also play solo bass and sing at the same time...I don't know how unique that is, I'll leave that to the audience to decide.
