Paul Hession | Back
Drums

Born in Leeds in 1956, Paul Hession took up drumming at the age of 15 and since then has played and broadcast in many European & Scandinavian countries as well as Argentina, Mexico, Cuba, USA & Canada. Still based in Yorkshire (following a spell living in Norway), he has played with many of the major figures on the free music scene such as Peter Brotzmann, Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Lol Coxhill, Sunny Murray, Marshall Allen, Frode Gjerstad, Peter Kowald, Joe McPhee, Borah Bergman, Otomo Yoshihide & his old friends Alan Wilkinson, Simon Fell, Mick Beck & Hans-Peter Hiby. Collaborators from a different scene are Tom Jenkinson (Squarepusher) and techno musician/dj Paul Woolford. While relishing the interaction of collective music-making, he is also an outstanding solo performer.
