Californian guitarist Julian Lage (1987) has emerged as one of the most talented instrumentalists of his generation. Early on, his skills were so obvious that he played with Santana at age 8, and even had a film crew produce a documentary about the child prodigy.
With his technical virtuosity and diverse stylistic range, Lage has made significant contributions to both jazz and Americana. His critically acclaimed albums like “Arclight”, “Love Hurts”, and “View with a Room” are testament to his improvisational prowess and solid songwriting foundation. Lage's collaborations with artists such as Gary Burton, John Zorn and Nels Cline further highlight his remarkable versatility and creativity.
