Brought up by a creative family, it was only natural that Jarni developed a passion for music.
After learning to sing and play the guitar at age ten, he went on to nurture his abilities by performing in several bands throughout his school years, and in his last year at high school he made the transition into solo performance and songwriting.
Inspired by his father’s record collection and a mixture of modern artists, Jarni’s writing style is heavily influenced by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jeff Beck, John Mayer, and countless others.
Jarni Blair has just begun to dip his toes into the music game having just released his debut single and video via social media late last year. He is solo artist who incorporates elements of Rock, Blues, Jazz, and Pop, and uses live looping while performing. He is definitely one to keep an eye on.
Jarni is currently working on recording his debut EP with Dunedin based producer Timothy Greenslade, which is due for release later this year.
