The John Hackett Band is made up from four gents who are also artists in their own right. We thought you’d appreciate a handy guide to who they are!
John is probably the best known of the band, from his work with his brother, both on record and countless live appearances, extensive session work, and (of course) his solo output.

He’s mostly recognised for his exquisite flute work, though he’s a multi-instrumentalist, also playing guitars and keyboards in the band.

    John Hackett Band

    Progressive Rock

    John Hackett is known for his distinctive flute sound in the world of progressive music and as an accomplished soloist.
    Solo flautist, guitarist, singer and composer, John is best known for his work with his brother Steve Hackett, the former Genesis guitarist.

    He began by learning guitar until aged 15, after hearing Ian McDonald playing with rock band King Crimson, he took up the flute. He collaborated with Steve on his early albums and toured with him playing flute, guitar and bass pedals.

    He was a founder member of Symbiosis, with Clive Williamson and Richard Bolton.

    He has recorded several classical solo and duo albums, but 2005 saw a change of direction with John releasing a rock album of his own songs, lyrics by Nick Clabburn, Checking Out of London which was given 5 stars in Record Collector magazine.  This was followed by an experimental flute/dance album Red Planet Rhythm with Moodi Drury.
