That musicians join forces to make music is something that’s happening all the time. A relatively new and exciting music project is made of John Hackett & Nick Fletcher. Together they soon releases their record Beynd The Star. The music there is 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 Fletcher’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. The quartet have made what is a stellar recording, and really try to make a highly original music, creating something unique in the progressive genre.
