Beyond the Stars
Beyond the Stars sees John Hackett and Nick Fletcher on an epic journey through time and place, from wistful reminiscing about happier times to a vision of a dystopian future. The songs take you on a rollercoaster ride showcasing Nick's incredible virtuosity on the guitar alongside John’s trademark flute. Their writing partnership, first featured on the John Hackett Band album We Are Not Alone, goes from strength to strength and Beyond the Stars shows them to be a musical force to be reckoned with. The duo are joined by drummer Wayne Proctor (King King) and six string bassist Simon Hall in what is a stellar recording of some highly original music, creating something unique in the progressive genre. 1.

We Are Not Alone
The 2017 studio album by The John Hackett Band - We Are Not Alone - offers a heady and eclectic mix of solid song-writing, swirling mellotron and on occasion, free improvisation. Virtuosic flute and guitar performances are liberally littered throughout the memorable compositions. John's brother, Steve Hackett, makes a special guest appearance on harmonica on the song Never Gonna Make A Dime, which tells the true story of the Hackett family's brief move to Canada in the Fifties. Special double CD edition with bonus disc recorded live At The Classic Rock Society, 2016.
