Ask Bruno about his guitar-playing and, sheepish grin out of the way, he’ll wax lyrical about an instrument he first picked up at the age of seven, and which has seen him through good times and bad, triumphs and false starts, ever since. It comes as no surprise to learn that Bruno studied and mastered jazz guitar: the “extra chord” that is such a hallmark of the jazz greats (and eludes so many guitarists unversed in the musical language of the genre) is a constant in Bruno’s writing and a quality that sets him far apart from that endless stable of like-minded peers.
You can hear it in the opening bars of Easily, one of a series of tracks Bruno has released over the past nine months. Just as the melody of the verse seems set to resolve itself, a detour occurs as he is ensnared by the beauty of another unorthodox chord.
For the past year, Bruno Major has been writing and releasing a new song every month. It’s an incredible project, with Bruno recording, mixing and releasing music from his North West London flat. And as he opens himself up like few artists are able to do – obviously, the result is stunning.
