Bjoern Meyer Bjoern Meyer

For more than thirty years, Björn — Swedish-born and Swiss-based — has shaped a unique voice for his instrument inside the most diverse contexts. He has worked alongside Persian harpist and singer Asita Hamidi and is a long term collaborator with Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem. He has spent more than twenty years with Swedish nyckelharpa player Johan Hedin and percussionist Fredrik Gille in Bazar Blå, co-defining the sound of contemporary Swedish folk music. For more than a decade he was a member of the minimalistic, zen-funk, groove-collective Nik Bärtsch’s Ronin. His first solo-album “Provenance” was released by ECM in the fall of 2017. It was their first, in a distinguished tradition of solo bass albums, devoted to the electric bass guitar.

“.. The album is often stunningly beautiful; bittersweet tones and deeply affecting melodies brought to life with Meyer's unique guitar-like use of the bass. Highly recommended.” - Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz “.. Meyer has taken a unique approach to composition for solo bass guitar. It is one that will move the instrument forward as much as it will move the listener emotionally.” - John Marley, Jazz Views
