Julian Lage looks at his future from the front rank of performers of his generation – a composer, arranger and guitarist, who delights and inspires musicians and fans alike. Lage’s virtuosity is only part of what makes him such a formidable artist; he also possesses broad musical wisdom, sophistication and wit.
Julian has come a long way from the eight-year-old guitar-playing prodigy who was the focus of the Oscar-nominated documentary, Jules At Eight. He has played on two Grammy-nominated albums by Taylor Eigsti and Nnenna Freelon. He was Jazz legend Gary Burton’s “latest guitar find” in his Next Generation Quintet, placing him in good company with Burton’s other guitar discoveries – Pat Metheny, John Scofield and Larry Coryell.
Julian has elicited praise from some of the most respected artists in contemporary music. Herbie Hancock says he plays with such “heart, mind, and soul”, and asked, “Where did you learn this so early in life?”
