Since his first work with PM’s Gong, Allan Holdsworth, Biréli Lagrène and Mike Oldfield Hansford has sought meaning through music. The new HRIII album is a continuation of that quest. The young HRIII guitarist Julien Sandiford and Hansford write compositions that are highly structured yet still lend themselves to improvisational freedom. Joining them will be PM Gong alumni Benoit Moerlen (vibes, marimba) and Francois Causse (drums, perc). The Paris recording sessions occur in early January!
“I’m loving HR3! Check out the guitarist (Julien Sandiford) – a new player playing the kind of guitar that’s doing it for me – a young fresh voice also embracing the older, more elemental. I really dig it – Yes guys!” - Gary Husband (Allan Holdsworth, John McLaughlin)
“HR3 is sublime!” – Stuart Zender (Jamiroquai, Mark Ronson)
“Hansford and HR3 are the future to my past!” – Lee Sklar (James Taylor, Billy Cobham, Hall & Oates etc.)
As with the first HRIII album, Grammy nominated engineer Denis Savage (Celine Dion) will be producing. Decadence on Vinyl and CD http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/hr3
