Hammond/piano/keys player

Joe Glossop on SoundBetter

London based session player of 20 years with a focus on the song! Tom Jones, Van Morrison, Paolo Nutini, James Hunter and many more. I use only authentic gear such as my Hammond B3 and Wurlitzer EP200. Soul/gospel/roots/rock.

My primary aim is always to serve the song, and my favourite kind of gig or session is backing a great singer with a story to tell.

I've worked consistently at the highest level for many years and attribute this to my enduring love of the classic songwriting and artists of the 60's and 70's which I believe gives me the ear to choose appropriate parts and the ability phrase them with sensitivity and soul.

I work from my London studio on only authentic vintage gear with a focus on communication and efficiency.
