Originally from Settefrati, Italy, guitarist and composer Julien Colarossi, born the 4th of February 1988, has recently graduated with a first-class honours degree in jazz performance from Newpark Music Centre in Dublin, Ireland.

He studied composition with Ronan Guilfoyle, rhythm studies with Conor Guilfoyle, ear-training and harmony with Gèrman Lima and Phil Ware, and jazz history and world music with Francesco Turrisi.
