Latitude 2017: Bruno Major

Click here to listen again to the interview:

 
One of the many endearing things about Bruno Major is that he doesn’t seem to have any idea what a powerful and emotionally searing singer he is.

Ask Bruno about his guitar playing though 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 whatsoever to learn that Bruno studied and mastered jazz guitar – studies that saw him earning a living as a session guitarist from the young age of 16.

Gareth chatted with him just before his performance at the Lake Stage on Saturday.

You can find out more about Bruno on his official Facebook page.

About Gareth Williams

I was born in 70s Brentwood and inherited my love of music from my parents. Over 500 gigs, 13 Glastonburys, and countless music purchases later, the passion remains. I became involved with promoting live music, and also briefly running a small label, WET Records with 2 friends. An interview with Phoenix about the label piqued my interest and I joined the team as the Sunday Morning Breakfast Show presenter in January 2017, where you can hear 3 hours of just about anything good.
