Bassist · Composer
Hayden Prosser (born in 1990) is one of the premier freelance bassist of his generation on the London UK creative jazz and improvised music scenes. Equally adept at performing on both the double bass and bass guitar, he is already known for his strong support when playing in ensembles, warm and full sound, sharp ear and lyrical soloing. Furthermore, a standout quality for which Prosser is known is that he brings to traditional Western music his experiences of perming music from the gypsy and North African traditions.
Prosser graduated from the Middlesex University Jazz Program, where he cut his teeth learning from UK jazz greats Stuart Hall, Chris Batchelor, Nikki Isles, Malcolm Edmonston, as well as participating in masterclasses with international jazz luminaries Tom Rainey, Julian Arguelles, Michael Formanek and George Garzone. Alongside his university education, Prosser studied with the double bass virtuoso Michael Janisch and has since received tutoring from world-renown bassists Drew Gress and Chris Lightcap.
Already at the age of 24, Prosser is involved with a multitude of high profile work as a freelance bassist, performing at venues such as the world-famous Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, the Royal College of Music, the Forge, and the Vortex Jazz Club to name a few. As a session bassist, he has appeared on the popular Channel 4 Music Progamme ‘Evo Music Rooms’ supporting Faithless, as well as on Resonance FM. He has become an in-demand dedicator of both the double bass and bass guitar and leads his own jazz groups in and around the London area.
