Nick Hempton is an alto and tenor saxophonist, composer, and bandleader producing new music in the modern/mainstream tradition. Calling New York home since 2004, he headlines clubs throughout the city, as well as concert halls and festivals around the world. Influenced by the greats of the instrument- Dexter Gordon, Sonny Stitt, Cannonball Adderley, etc, and informed by a youth misspent playing Rhythm & Blues and Ska in his native Australia, Hempton's jazz is original, approachable, and always swinging. In demand as a sideman as well as a leader, Nick has performed with some of the top names in Jazz and popular music including Roy Hargrove, Peter Bernstein, Harry Whitaker, Jerry Weldon, Joe Magnarelli, The Temptations, and many more; and has featured on dozens of albums encompassing the full range of popular music styles. He has made numerous television and radio appearances, and has also developed an excellent reputation as a music educator, holding private lessons and masterclasses for school- and mature-age students.
