Nicolas Meier is a virtuoso guitarist that has an expansive vision as to what can be done with the instrument. He has a creative vigor that allows him to master different styles of play with conviction, making him one of the leading players in the world today. The Swiss-born musician continually pushes his own evolution through his dedication to the guitar as well as his uncanny ability to create music that defies convention.
After touring the world extensively for several years as a member of The Jeff Beck Group, Nicolas Meier is quickly making the transition from a name that few recognize to a man who needs no introduction. In less than two decades of being a professional musician, he has been involved in more than twenty albums encompassing a host of different styles and genres. Without question, Meier is one of the most capable, inventive voices on his instrument in the world, today.
On his latest effort, INFINITY, Meier enlists the help of bassist Jimmy Haslip and drummer Vinnie Colaluta to serve as the foundational pieces for his delightfully divergent paths. It takes strong musicians to tackle a variety of styles, and these two perform beautifully. The album features eleven songs which showcase Meier’s adaptability and ability to create his own style. The music transports listeners to places all over the world, using elements of Middle-Eastern music as well as more familiar European elements from his own background. Through this, Meier provides compelling, convincing evidence that he’s one of today’s most accomplished and visionary guitarists.
