John Hackett is known for his distinctive flute sound in the world of progressive music and as an accomplished soloist.

The release of the rock album Another Life (on Esoteric Antenna) in 2015 was the catalyst to forming the new John Hackett Band with Nick Fletcher (guitars), Jeremy Richardson (bass, guitars & vocals) and Duncan Parsons (drums) in 2016. JHB's debut album We Are Not Alone was released in 2017.

New recordings by the John Hackett Band and a follow up to last year's Hackett/Fletcher album Beyond The Stars are in the works.

What has been said about John Hackett Band in concert:

” When I saw the John Hackett Band I was immediately impressed by their sheer virtuosity. In Nick Fletcher they have an amazing guitarist  who is up there with the best in the business and the rhythm section of Jeremy and Duncan have an almost telepathic empathy…I would say they are an inventive, melodic, progressive rock band in the same general area as Caravan, Camel and even Focus.”

“A furious ,spirited full band encore of Red Hair is met with warm, rapturous applause.”
