About the artist
Vitor Pereira was born in Portugal, his early ventures in music begun with rock bands but soon enough took a more serious turn and he started studying classical music graduating in classical guitar in 2003.
Whilst studying classical music, he also developed an interest in jazz which led him to participate in several workshops, private lessons and seminars around Europe with names like: Pat Metheny, Jonathan Kreisberg or Gilad Hekselman.
In 2004 he moved to London to study at Middlesex University where he finished a BA hons in Jazz performance. Residing in London since then, Vitor has been an active musician in the UK, Portugal and Europe, playing alongside musicians such as James Allsopp, Marc Demuth, Binker Goldings or Asaf Sirkis to name a few.
As a leader he formed the “Vitor Pereira Quintet” which became his main platform to write his own music and explore an artistic identity.
This band has been getting an amazing response from audience and music media alike for its innovative and energetic sound.
With a myriad of influences that go from punching rock riffs to multilayered minimalistic textures, they have been acclaimed as one of the most exciting modern jazz bands in London of the moment.
They published three studio albums since 2011 triggering numerous radio plays, interviews and performances throughout the UK and Europe.
