Oxley-Meier guitar project

Pete Oxley & Nicholas Meier
Two master-guitarists -fiery interplay- jazzesque

“Don’t fall into the trap of assuming that this is something exclusively for guitar buffs, or even jazz buffs. If you love music of any kind you’ll probably fall for this”. ~ The Observer ★★★★ March 2015

The above review was one of many 4-star reviews for their 2015 release, ‘Chasing Tales’. (MGPCD016).


Following the album’s February release, the duo toured the UK extensively in 2015 (60+ dates),  plus a further 25-date tour in the spring of 2016 - consistently garnering more-than-generous reviews from the national and specialist press!

Oxley & Meier
were invited by Jazzwise to be the first ever featured artists to have a covermount CD attached to the magazine (December/January edition)!

The duo will be releasing their new album ‘The Colours of Time’ in February 2017, to coincide with another major UK spring tour (35 dates). This is their most ambitious album to date, in that it is a ‘double: one disc in duo format, the second in quartet with bass and drums.

Expect a dazzling display of contemporary fare, ranging from Turkish panache to soundscapes of latin America to English pastoralism. Hear this played on nylon string, steel string, electric, 12 string, fretless, slide, guitar-synth, glissentar guitars and more!

For their live gigs, the Oxley-Meier Guitar Project aim to entertain by playing with a spontaneity and an intuitive interplay between them that keeps them fresh and fired up from gig to gig. The duo therefore comes to the performance with what they hope are the audiences anticipations: to expect the unexpected!

‘A fascinating fusion opulent with evocative splendour’:  MOJO  ★★★★
(Listed as No. 3 in the top 10 jazz albums of 2015)

‘CD of the week’: The London Evening Standard ★★★★

‘Top ten CDs of the year’: The Telegraph ★★★★   

‘’This album captures the lightning in a bottle effect created by the union of two perfectly matched artists and is already the front runner for my album of the year.’: 
Jazz Views ★★★★
