British jazz fusion guitarist Jules Hay, has been in many successful music projects spanning 25 years, and has recently been working on an exciting new project involving a collaboration with Brazilian musicians, fuelled by his love of Brazilian music, and an opportunity to fuse his jazz fusion playing with infectious Brazilian rythyms.
Jules started playing guitar at 12 years of age in Kent, UK. Originally inspired by rock and blues, he learned guitar with a handful of private lessons but mainly self taught. Gravitating to heavy rock and metal, he toured and recorded with various metal acts in the mid nineties up until 2000. From 2000 - 2005 he was involved with the Electronica act d'booga, recording albums, EPs and constantly touring and playing festivals.
In 2015 he enrolled in LCCM college of music in London, in order to develop a deeper understanding of jazz improvisation, world music, music theory and composition. Since graduating in 2018, Jules has been playing various jazz gigs, playing sessions for Jay Scott and the Find, and living and writing music in South America.
His love of Brazilian music, travelling and working with old friends led him to compose and record, "From London To Little London' a collection 0f 10 Brazilian Jazz fusion tracks, in Londrina, Brazil. © 2020 by Jules Hay
