Oli Hayhurst on SoundBetter

Bass player for Pharoah Sanders and Steve Harley

I have played on over 60 albums with jazz artists, singer-songwriters, world music artists. Whilst I am mainly a jazz player I have worked with many singer-songwriters and folk artists such as Steve Harley, Lau, Polly Paulusma, Martin Simpson and Rosabella Gregory. I also play with the bow. I recently played in the string section for Dionne Warwick at the Royal Albert Hall. Recent tours include Sheridan Smith, Steve Hackett's orchestral project, Alison Balsom and Collabro.
I record from home using a DPA and a large diaphragm microphone into Logic via an Apogee Duet interface. I will send you both tracks so you can blend them to get the bass sound you want.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

    Excellent player who proved a really tasteful part. Also a top quality recording and a lovely human.

    Having Oli play on my tracks was fantastic - the musicality his bass playing brought to my tracks is just spot on and his upright bass tone sits beautifully in the mix. I highly recommend Oli and I'm looking forward to working with him again in the future!
