Hi, I'm Don Chandler, welcome to my website. I'm a bass player from the U.K currently touring with UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey. This year (2016) I was also Grammy winning producer for best reggae album Morgan Heritage's Strictly roots .
Although I have been very fortunate to cross over to many genres outside of reggae, reggae music has always remained at the centre of everything I do.
Trawling through the internet and as a reader of many bass magazines, reggae doesn't get the props it deserves so I decided to create a solution to the problem rather than whine about it.
Here at the reggae bass hub I will share my journey from sound system box boy to bass player and producer of the worlds biggest reggae artists. As a passionate educator I will also be sharing the lessons I used to help me reach my goal, hopefully I can inspire the next kid who thinks the mountain is too high to climb
I hope you enjoy the journey, aim high.
