GUITAR PLAYING

Solo Guitarist also available as a duo, trio or quartet. With innovative use of Looping I create the sound of several guitars playing together live, as well as playing solo arrangements, covering standards from several eras of jazz and popular music and classical repertoire & original compositions.

Playing the guitar has taken me across the world, playing live and recording in Russia, Peru, USA, Canada, Europe & throughout the UK. I have played at many prestigious events and places including: Manchester Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival. Over more than 40 years playing I’ve been lucky to play with Mike Stern, Martin Taylor, Stan Tracey, Ike Isaacs.

My style is a mixture of Jazz, Original Compositions & Techniques, Classical, Flamenco & Popular elements. I was hugely influenced by the popular music of my childhood, Stevie Wonder, James Taylor etc. And also great jazz musicians like Sonny Rollins, Stan Tracey & Jim Hall.

I have several releases that are available from iTunes, Amazon & CD Baby and can be ordered using the links for the RECORDINGS page of this site.

STUDIO & SESSION WORK

In addition to playing and teaching the guitar I also work regularly as a Studio Musician, Musical Director, Arranger, Co-Writer/Composer, Producer & Engineer, with various projects in the U.K. & other countries.

Recent & current projects include:

The studio is available locally & internationally for clients from solo acts, to bands & voiceover artists. We also after mixing & mastering and studio musicians, including myself on guitars. Lima is a fantastic place to be and Barranco in particular, has a wonderfully cosmopolitan life style. There are great coffee houses, restaurants, bars, venues, art studios, ex-colonial & local building etc. I couldn’t say enough good about this Munire Studios, the people or Lima. to enquire about the studio email info@andybrotherton.com
