Contact Hansford

Hansford began his career in the clubs of New York City.

With French drummer Pierre Moerlen, he reformed the award winning jazz-rock group Gong and was promptly signed to Virgin Records and later to Arista Records. His innovative compositions contributed greatly to Gong's success. International touring soon secured him a place among the world's leading bass players as well as work with Mike Oldfield, Allan Holdsworth, Bireli Lagrene and La Monte Young.

He plays Warwick bass guitars and amplifiers and has worked closely with them on the development of the first Just Intonation bass.

He is a founding member of the monster group Gongzilla featuring guitar meisters Bon Lozaga, David Torn and David Fiuczynski. Hansford's latest project is HR3.
