Meet Jarni Blair, a highly skilled and passionate guitarist from New Zealand with over 18 years of experience in the music industry.
Jarni's love for music was inspired by his father, who has played in bands since the late 60s. At the young age of ten, Jarni began performing and continued playing in various bands throughout his school years. He transitioned to solo performance and song writing in his final year of high school, which he pursued for quite some time before returning to collaborate with other bands and artists. Jarni's music is a fusion of pop singer-songwriter, jazz, and blues, which he describes as "Geek Pop."
He is heavily influenced by legends such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. He also puts his own spin on cover songs, keeping the essence of the originals while adding his own unique flavours. Jarni's successful career includes playing and writing music alongside big names such as Kings, Jason Kerrison, The Jordan Luck Band, and his single 'Higher Than The Sky' was on the NZ Music charts for a couple of weeks in 2020.
In 2023, he played with one of NZ's household names, 'Summer Thieves', who toured playing with L.A.B. on their Australian Tour. With plenty of opportunities on the horizon, Jarni's future in music looks promising. He continues to showcase his talent and passion for music, leaving a lasting impression on everyone who has the pleasure of experiencing his performances.
