Bruno Major Interview

by

Bruno Major has a voice filled with such a raw intensity that you can’t help but stop and listen. The London-based musician started as a session guitar player and has since transformed into a recording artist in his own right. He was featured in a Burberry Acoustic session where he performed his song “The First Thing You See,” released his first EP (live, nonetheless) on January 21 with Virgin Records, and is working on his debut album. You don’t want to miss what he’s coming out with.

Cliché: From your first EP to working in the studio on your full-length album to announcing more performance dates, how is 2014 treating you so far?
Bruno Major: 2013 was a total whirlwind, and 2014 is shaping up to be even better. At the moment I am ensconced in the studio making my debut album. I can’t wait to start playing it live.

What made you first get involved with music?
I first started playing music because my dad played guitar, and I wanted to be like him.

What made you decide to release a live EP as your first EP?
The live EP was really a representation of my live performances. I’ve been doing a lot of shows just me and my guitar. It gives me a certain freedom to play whatever I feel at the time.

How’s the process going for your full length album?
Recording my album has been the most intoxicating, wonderful, intense, and life-changing experience. It’s just so important to me, to have, on record, an honest representation of where I am musically at this time in my life. It is sounding beautiful, and I couldn’t be happier.

How different is the process for recording live compared to not?
Most of the album has been recorded live. It was a question of getting the best musicians in a room together, and capturing a special performance. I hope you will hear an honest, heartfelt collection of songs.

Where do you draw inspiration?
I draw inspiration from everyday life—things I see, hear, certain sentences people say, experiences I go through every day.

If you could record with one artist (or band) who would you pick and why?
I would love to have recorded with Louis Armstrong. I don’t think there has ever been a more musical person.
