It comes as no surprise whatsoever to learn that Bruno Major studied and mastered jazz guitar (studies that saw him earning a living as a session guitarist from the young age of 16). 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.
It has been a prolific nine months, recording, mixing and releasing music from his North West London flat. To release songs in such quick succession, is not a tactic as such, rather a cathartic release that Bruno craves.
