Steve Hackett is renowned as an immensely talented and innovative rock musician. He was lead guitarist with Genesis as part of their classic line up with Gabriel, Collins, Banks and Rutherford, who produced several of the band’s most acclaimed albums including “Selling England by the Pound” (a favourite of John Lennon) and “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”. With Steve's extraordinary versatility in both his electric guitar playing and his composing, he involves influences from many genres, including Jazz, World Music and Blues. He is equally adept in his classical albums that include renditions of pieces by composers from Bach to Satie, his own acoustic guitar compositions that have gained the admiration of many, including Yehudi Menuhin, and ambitious guitar/orchestra albums such as “A Midsummer Night's Dream”, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic.

His most recent studio album is 2019’s “At the Edge of Light”, which was met with critical acclaim and charted in several countries all around the world including #13 in Germany, #3 UK Rock charts, #28 UK album charts, #7 UK vinyl charts, #12 Sweden Physical Album Charts and more. While keeping a continuous studio output for several decades, Steve Hackett has been presenting classic Genesis tracks with his live band, now “Genesis Revisited Band & Orchestra: Live” marks one of his most impressive live releases to date as it was recorded in October 2018 at London’s Royal Festival Hall with the renowned 42-piece Heart of England Philharmonic Orchestra!
