About Jay Gibson

Professional freelance guitarist, based in London!
Jay Gibson's profile picture
Guitarist
London

I'm a passionate and committed music professional, with the talent and drive to succeed. I have just finished studying for a BA(Hons) Degree at the Academy of contemporary music (ACM) under the prominent figure in the industry, Giorgio Serci (Jools Holland).  I have worked and gigged up and down the UK, from functions and weddings to working with artists in live and studio settings. I also play and write as part of an originals band called Taepia who currently, are in the process of recording their first EP. Recently, I have spent my time tutoring and helping young musicians/guitarists develop their skills.
