In just a few short years UK-based Swiss guitarist Nicolas Meier has carved a reputation out as one of the UK’s most
original guitarists. Drawing on a love of Turkish, Eastern music, Flamenco, Tango all mix with jazz, Meier has developed
his own unique sound with his regular group (latest release was his eight album with his full band.)
London based Swiss guitarist Nicolas Meier is one of the stars of a vibrant British jazz scene, his trademark sound, as
heard on his MGP Records and Naim albums, a mixture of Methenyesque jazz and spicy Turkish and world music rhythms.
While in 2006 Meier and his band won the prestigious Grand Prize Of The Jury and 1st Prize Jazz Guitar at Jazz a Juan
Revelations 2006: A competition open to the finest new jazz musicians and bands in Europe and run by the legendary Jazz
