Music

Music and rhythm find their way

into the secret places of the soul.

Plato

I have been a lover of music for as long as I can remember.

I was raised around music and had some early life experiences that encouraged the roots of my lifelong fascination with rhythm and grooves. I’ve played a few different instruments, but the one that has always appealed to me is the bass guitar. I love a good bass groove. I find them captivating and feel moved when I listen to them. I often can’t help but dance along to the deep vibrations.

I started playing bass when I was seventeen and learned songs by bands like Nirvana, Muse, and Led Zeppelin to begin developing my skills. Not long after I joined my first band – The Creeks – which is when I started writing bass lines of my own. I then went on to play with other bands like Beneath The Oak, Child Loses Arm, Neuts, and Kath and The Kicks. I play in a band called Betalooper now with my husband, Jamie Mooney (guitar and lead vocals), and Alex Simpson (drums and backing vocals). I also enjoy writing music and am currently working towards writing an album – as well as working as a freelance bass player, vocalist, and songwriting contributor.

If you want to create and play some music with me I’d love to have a chat about how we can make that happen. You can email me at hello@shaneenmooney.com or book in for a consultation using the button below.
