Alan Hampton is a bassist/composer/singer who’s toured, written, and recorded with several leading artists in a variety of genres, such as Robert Glasper, Andrew Bird, Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens, Gretchen Parlato, and Meshell Ndegeocello. Hampton’s original music has appeared on a number of records, films, and TV shows.  In 2017-2018 he performed regularly on Chris Thile’s Live From Here, where he met I’m With Her, with whom he performed the Grammys in 2019. An original score by Andrew Bird and Alan Hampton is featured on the Emmy nominated documentary Storm Lake. They are currently working on a full feature film, soon to be announced. His bass playing is featured on Larry Goldings’s score for the Netflix series, Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam CJ Walker. The title track from Erimaj’s “Conflict of a Man,” was featured on HBO’s new series Insecure.  “Still,” one of many collaborations between Hampton and Grammy nominated vocalist Gretchen Parlato, was performed on French television in Manu Katche’s One Shot Not.  His vocals are featured on a Hexum/Hampton cowrite entitled “This Time of Year” in the opening scene of A Cinderella Christmas. In addition to writing and contributing dozens of songs for other artists, he’s also produced several records, two under his own name:  The Moving Sidewalk, and Origami For the Fire, which received critical acclaim from Ben Ratliff of the New York Times:

“Alan Hampton is a songwriter who makes you reach for platitudes about ‘good music’ — how people don’t write adventurous or honest pop songs anymore, how it’s all archness and monotony now, how our harmony-starved ears have shrunk….He does that because he’s got loads of talent.”
