Alan Hampton

Alan Hampton is a busy man. When he’s not on the road, playing bass and singing with Andrew Bird, Meshell N’Degeocello, Gretchen Parlato, and Robert Glasper, he might be in the studio, laying down tracks for Sufjan Stevens, Luke Temple, Derrick Hodge, Kendrick Scott, Esperanza Spalding, or The New Pornographers. But somehow, in between tours and takes, Hampton has also been steadily crafting his own sound. When Hampton released his debut record, The Moving Sidewalk, in 2011, The New York Times proclaimed him a musician with “loads of talent.” Now, after three years of touring, recording, and writing, his sophomore album, Origami for the Fire, is scheduled for release on November 4, 2014.
