ARTIST BIO

Born on May 4th 1994 in Dubai, UAE, Colombian guitarist Juan Dhas was immersed in music from the very beginning. From a young age, Juan absorbed whatever he could around him, subconsciously molding his musical tastes. In 2010, Juan auditioned for the prestigious Berklee College of Music, where he was awarded a scholarship and began his studies in Fall 2011. Since then, Juan has had the opportunity to study with great musicians such as Tim Miller, David Fiuczynski, and Leo Blanco (with whom he has performed).
 
While at Berklee, Juan was exposed to a wide variety of music, which had a marked effect on his playing and creative voice. Not only did he discover Contemporary Jazz, he also began to cultivate his guitar style around the sound of other instruments: most notably, the saxophone and the piano. Some of the influences cited during this period of time include Joshua Redman, Michael Brecker, Chris Potter, Aaron Parks, and Taylor Eigsti. Combining these sounds with some of his earlier influences, such as Tom Quayle and Allan Holdsworth, Juan has continued to craft a fluid, lyrical sound.
 
When 20 years old, Juan graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee and released his debut album, Embracing Clarity, a collection of unique compositions that takes the listener on a musical journey. Weaving together lyrical melodies and colourful textures, the album creates an atmosphere that is both emotionally rich and thought-provoking.
