Known for his work with Moerlen's Gong in 2000, Jens Mayer has established himself as a tasteful guitarist. Always playing from the heart,
delivering great tone, incorporating soulful bendings and never overplaying, Jens just knows what is right for a song.
Yet when it is time to burn, he uses his virtuoso liquid playing style to transport strong emotions no matter which music genre (Rock, Fusion, Jazz, Funk, Soul, Country, R'n'B, Salsa etc..)
In 2008, Jens released his first self-titled album "Steppin'up" which features guest appearences from Jean-Luc Ponty guitarist Jamie Glaser and Frank Wolf on sax.
Jens has studied and played privately with guitar giants Tom Quayle, Alex Hutchings and Jack Thammarat.
When not gigging or producing for his own label JC music in his studio, Jens is constantly working on evolutionizing his playing style.
