A chameleonic , prolific UK session ace, Guy Pratt has distinguished himself on stage and in the studio with post-Waters Pink Floyd, Robert Palmer, Bryan Ferry, Madonna, David Gilmour, Icehouse, Tom Jones, Gary
Moore, Jon Lord, Echo & the Bunnymen, Iggy Pop, Rod Stewart, Andy MacKay, Michael Jackson, Peter Cetera, The Dream Academy, and Tears for Fears, and Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, among others.

In addition to his acting, songwriting, and production credits, Mr. Pratt is also a stand-up comic who incorporates his artistry in his stage show My Bass and Other Animals which is also the title of his book on Orion Press (2007).

Pratt’s percolating jazz / funk / reggae inspired passages on the Dark Side of the Moon tracks from Floyd’s live Pulse (1995) collection reinvigorated and updated the time-tested original classic.

Guy is a bass collector, among his weapons of choice include vintage Fender P and J basses, MusicMan StingRay, Aira SB, and even a fretless Steinberger as a member of Icehouse!
