"Jafro Music Projects" begun in 2012 as a means of showcasing my projects from college and a number of guitar instrumental jams.
My project has since grown to encompass many different genres and styles ranging from Hendrix inspired blues rock, QoTSA inspired desert rock, to industrial music, electronic art rock and more.
I've had stints with a number of bands over the years, playing in a band from my first year of university who would go on to be signed to my future employers at Phoenixx Records, called "Torpedo" as a guitarist.
I have been playing guitar since 2006 (as well as bass since 2014) and recording/producing music since 2011, having been studying the subject of Music and Music Technology since secondary school. My main musical influences (to name a few) include: Jimi Hendrix, Angus Young, Josh Homme, Chris Cornell, Trent Reznor, Alain Johannes, Natasha Shneider, Omar Rodriguez- Lopez, Teri Suarez and Iggy Pop.
In 2018, I graduated from Staffordshire University with a Bachelor's, and a Master's Degree in Music Technology, where over the course of my undergraduate and postgraduate study I was able to showcase my work as a songwriter and producer, both on my own projects, and my work Phoenixx Records and OMG Radio.
In addition to this I also worked as Staffordshire University Student's Unions sound and lighting technician, working with a number of local DJ's and bands as well as famous faces like Tynchy Stryder, and The Chuckle Brothers.
Since 2019 I've been releasing music on a monthly basis on all major platforms, and also streaming my music production work over on my twitch channel (twitch.tv/jafromusic) every week. The VOD's also go up on my YouTube channel afterwards if you miss them!
On social media I'm most active on Instagram so if you want to get in touch personally or see what I'm up to on a daily basis go and follow me there!
