Vernau was born in Girona in 1994 and is now based in Basel, Switzerland. He began to study classical
guitar and violin, starting saxophone later at the age of 11. Three years later he became acquainted
with Dani Alonso, with whom he discovered jazz and started the JBBG (Youth Big Band of Girona), which
has since become a cornerstone of the Girona jazz scene.
At the age of 18, he moves to Barcelona to pursue a degree in jazz performance at the ESMUC and
starts his first project, the Vernau Mier Quintet. With this quintet, he records his debut album Nebuloses
d'Azimut live at the Sunset Jazz Club, featuring original compositions
