Quirky and lush guitar compositions

When he was 12 years old, Colombian singer-songwriter Julián Mayorga was presented with handwritten instructions on how to play the guitar intro to a Charly García song. He didn't know how to play the instrument, nor did he even own one, but  he carried the piece of paper around with him for months, attempting it each time he came across a guitar. Mayorga has since grown by leaps and bounds, having opened for Lætitia Sadier in 2012 and releasing his album Atlas in 2014, for which he designed his own synthesizers. Mayorga earned his Masters degree in electroacoustic and algorithmic composition in Madrid, and has been releasing music under his present moniker since 2010.
