Biography

Sven Hammond Soul
`the fresh old school hammond soul, jazz and funk sound from Holland’

Sven Figee, musician, producer and founder of `Sven Hammond Soul’ was born on the 27th of may 1975. His style of playing may be best described as rockin’ fat hammond soul, jazz and funk. Studied jazz piano at the Rotterdam conservatory but got really into playing the Hammond B3 with The Hague based funk band ‘Prats the Whoblem’. During and after his student days he started touring as sideman with dutch singer / songwriter Marcel de Groot. After that, he joined dutch rock diva Anouk on her European tour in ‘98/’99 and played several club tours and festivals with her in 2000. In 2000 he also teamed up with dutch singer Rose Spearman producing and co-writing her debut album ‘Trust’ in 2002 and ‘Livin It’ in 2007. He cooperated with many artists like Keith Caputo (US), Nate James (UK), Sandra St. Victor (US), Berget Lewis, DJ Roog, DJ Maestro, Xander de Buisonje and many others.

The year 2006 he started his own band, `Sven Hammond Soul’.
Drummer Joost Kroon and bass player Glenn Gaddum are playing fuming sixties and seventies grooves on which Sven’s organ moans, growls, jizzls, jazzls and rocks; the way it should be. Inspired by his heroes Jimmy McGriff, Jimmy Smith and Jimmy Hendrix, Figee almost breaks down the organ. Guitar player Tim Eijmaal tops it of with razor-sharp riffs and distorting, screaming and bluesy guitar solo’s.
