Greyum May

Portrait of Greyum May


+ Bass & Electronic Music Tutor

As a bassist and multi-instrumentalist, Greyum has spent the past two decades as a touring musician, working with bands such as Keepers Brew, Ozric Tentacles, Firebird and The Black Hand. He also works regularly as a backline technician and stage manager, working with artists such as Carcass, Ghost, Megadeth and Lamb of God.  Greyum describes his musical tastes as left of centre, with psychedelic and progressive electronic music being of particular interest. A self-confessed tone and gear junky, Greyum is perhaps at his happiest when knee deep in MIDI cables, FX units, synth modules and other various assorted audio junk!
