About the In The Style series:
The In The Style series focus strictly on the playing style of the artist. These are not general "how to" lessons. The goal of these lessons is to give insight on a wide range of topics relevant to the musical style of the artist. Advanced students will be able to immediately absorb and work on many of the concepts covered in the lessons. Beginner and intermediate level students will benefit greatly from the transcriptions of the numerous video performances with close ups when relevant. Music is like a language, and it is best learnt by surrounding yourself with better musicians. The goal of the "In The Style Series" is to give you this access, as much as possible, in the comfort of your own home!
About Andreas Varady:
Andreas Varady was born in Slovakia into a Hungarian Romani family. He began learning guitar at the age of four under the direction of his father, Bandi. In 2007, his family moved to Limerick, Ireland and after two years of busking in Limerick and Cork, he met Irish drummer and producer David Lyttle after writing to him on YouTube.
Lyttle began featuring him in his band and in 2010 produced Varady's debut album Questions for Lyte Records. The release of Questions and Varady's growing presence on YouTube brought him to the attention of Martin Taylor, Louis Stewart, Tommy Emmanuel, and later Quincy Jones.
In 2011, when he was 13, he performed at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London and is the club's youngest headliner.
Varady appeared on the front cover of Guitar Player magazine, and at festivals in France, the UK and the South Pacific. In 2012 Varady was invited by Claude Nobs to perform at Montreux Jazz Festival as part of Quincy Jones's Global Gumbo, which Jones presented. Varady performed with the same group in New York and Los Angeles later in 2012, and signed to Jones's management company in January 2013.
Varady signed a deal with Verve Records in October 2013 and recorded his first album for the label in January 2014. The first album, Andreas Varady, was produced by David Paich, Jay Oliver, and Quincy Jones and was released in August 2014.
