Origin: United States

Main instrument: Bass/double bass/cello

Genres: Gospel, Jazz, Manouche jazz (Gypsy jazz), R&B/Soul/Funk

Born November 10, 1963, in Philadelphia, self-taught bassist Darryl Hall drastically changed his life path after graduating with a marketing degree in the early 1990s. With some help from famed local bassists Tyrone Brown and Gerald Price, Hall quickly mastered his instrument and moved to NYC after quitting his day job, where he performed and toured with various artists. His career skyrocketed in 1995 after winning a bass competition held by the Thelonious Monk Institute, a seminal event which instantly allowed him to collaborate with more prominent jazz musicians, leading up to the release of a first acclaimed solo album, Subtle Touch, in 2000. Hall moved to Paris in 2004 and has since collaborated with legendary French artists Christian Escoudé and Laurent De Wilde.
