It’s hard to find a true blues guitarist in today’s musical landscape, but that’s exactly what you get with Jules Leyhe. Armed with a degree in Guitar Performance from the esteemed Berklee College of Music and with the soul of a musician three times his age, Leyhe combines classic blues guitar with modern electronic instrumentation and creates a sonic mesh you’ll surely feel in your core.
Named one of Guitar Player Magazine’s 12 Players of Christmas in 2014 as well as the Bay Area Blues Foundation’s All Stars in 2015, Leyhe has already shared the stage with many of Blues’ greatest talents – including Buddy Guy, Charlie Musselwhite, Chris Cain, Jimmy Vivino, Barry Goldberg, Nick Gravenites, Elvin Bishop, and Maria Muldaur.
Both with his band and on his own, Leyhe has been taking over the San Francisco Bay Area one venue at a time, playing everywhere from the seminal Boom Boom Room to the Sweetwater Music Hall, The Great American Music Hall, Slims, and continually sells out performances at the famed Biscuits & Blues. This year, he will expand his geographic cover by playing a summer west coast tour in support of his newest album, JUICEBOX.
