A young Hungarian gypsy, born (July 24th, 1997) in Slovakia, raised there and thereafter in Ireland, Andreas Varady has already graced the cover of Guitar Player magazine and has played clubs and festivals all over world, including Montreux.
He released the CD Questions together with David Lyttle in 2010, and will release his second CD in 2013.
Andreas is now mentored and managed by Quincy Jones.
"Varady, who looks much like any other early teenage boy in jeans and Converse trainers, shoots off on a solo of astonishing virtuosity and speed with the casual, distracted air that other boys of his age have when they're idling away afternoons on an Xbox."
– THE TIMES
"This diminutive Gypsy guitarist cops Miles and Coltrane tunes by ear, solos like an old soul, and shares the stage with celebs…super-swinging and soulful…imaginative single-note and chord melodies punctuated with free-wheeling angular runs.”
– GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE
"This wunderkind Andreas Varady plays much more in the vein of Wes or George Benson and, on top of that, is highly musical and responsive."
"It's not just his ability to move around the fretboard that's thrilling; it's his feeling for the music, his harmonic awareness and all-round musicality."
– THE HERALD
"Much more than a technical boy wonder, he displays considerable creativity and a deep understanding of the music...phenomenal."
- THE INDEPENDENT
"Frightening speed, complex harmony and chording, all delivered with flashes of feel that belie his age."
– GUITARIST MAGAZINE
"Questions is a delight: fun, accessible, unpretentious and positive. The quartet of musicians is outstanding. [David] Lyttle and Varady are already accomplished players and represent an emerging Irish jazz scene of tremendous potential."
