About Dishan Abrahams

I’m a bass player from Perth, Australia currently living in London. I dabbled with a few different instruments when I was a kid and finally decided bass was the one for me when I was about 15.

Although I was self-taught, I was in the fortunate position of being able to learn to play in a band, pretty much from day one of picking up the bass, in church and later in clubs, bars, etc. I feel like this was the best training for me and I think it’s a really quick way to learn what’s required in whatever role you play on stage.

After I finished school I studied Jazz at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts, where I got my first formal lessons on my instrument. There were some amazing players at the academy when I went through and it was a great environment to sharpen your skills in. I still feel like I’m learning from those guys today.

During this time, I started to get busy playing as many gigs as I could get and eventually joined a band which managed to get signed and do a bunch of touring and recording which, for me, was like the next stage in learning my trade. The band, as is so often the case, separated after a few years but it left me with the bug of playing my own music and so I formed another band and with this outfit, decided to make the move to London. A few years later, after this band also split up, I decided to go back to just being a bass player.

Since then I have been fortunate enough to play with some amazing artists and musicians on some incredible shows and I hope I can continue to do so. These include Kylie, Leona Lewis, Nicole Scherzinger, Sugababes, Christophe Willem, the London Horns and many more.
