Rick Foot

Double bassist and writer of sardonic songs, as a bass player Rick's background is in jazz and abstract improvisation, and much of his current work is with acoustic singer/songwriters, most recently touring with the Ruth Theodore Band. He has recorded and performed with many people across a range of genres, from folk musicians Nancy Kerr and James Fagan to saxophonists Dick Heckstall-Smith and Evan Parker.

As a songwriter he has released an album (Rain Machine) and an EP (Songs of Idiocy & Expedience) of his own work, which he performs solo with voice, bass and loop device. His 39-second miniature A Message to the Future was a finalist in the 2018 International Songwriting Competition.
