Nick Harper & Jakko Jakszyk

Nick Harper & Jakko Jakszyk are each incredible musicians in their own right, but put them together and you're in for a real treat.

MEET THE ARTISTS

Nick Harper is a singer-songwriter and guitarist hailing from the UK. He was inspired to pick up the guitar at age 10, in part by his father Roy Harper, a masterful folk songwriter, as well as his father's well known friends: Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, & David Gilmour.

At 20 years old, he made his musical debut on his father's 1985 release, Whatever Happened to Jugula? He spent many years touring with his father, building a fan-base, and eventually releasing his own EP in 1994, Light at the End of the Kennel.

Tom Robinson of BBC6 Music sums up Harper's talents well, "To call Nick a superlative singer/songwriter could put his highly lauded guitar talent in the shade, and to call him a guitarist's guitarist might slight his distinctive, soulful voice and passionate songs."

Jakko Jakszyk is best known for his work as a singer and guitarist for King Crimson, but prior to King Crimson, Jakko had led bands for over 30 years. He's worked with countless musicians around the world and is a multi-talented record producer, session musician, and actor.

What makes Jakko such a masterful guitarist is quite possibly his incredible diversity and understanding of all types of music. From pop, to progressive rock, to world music, Jakko draws deeply from many musical wells.
