Kristian Borring Group

A guitarist of enormous technical ability who utilizes his considerable gifts thoughtfully and tastefully”, (Ian Mann, The Jazz Mann)

Danish born Kristian Borring has built his name as a skillful guitarist with great melodic sense and sophisticated harmonic understanding, equally mastering the standard repertoire as well as original material.

Since arriving to London in 2005, Kristian has proved his talent as a player, working with many exciting musicians as well as focusing on developing his voice as composer and leader of his own projects. His debut album, Nausicaa, released on Milanese based label, Ultra Sound Records, received wide spread national acclaim with numerous great reviews.  The album was described by John Fordham (The Guardian) as a “hyper-cool and low-key approach to jazz guitar, but reprises it with warmth, confidence and a rhythmic hipness that's thoroughly contemporary”. All About Jazz writes, “An assured and confident debut, demonstrating Borring's talents as a composer and player…impressive first release.” 

Kristian is currently working on his second album, set to be released during early 2014. The recording is meant as a personal homage to the experience of the life in a metropolis and will released on Yellymould. It features an outstanding lineup of some of the UK’s most exciting jazz musicians: Jim Hart (vib), Arthur Lea (pno), Mick Coady (bs) and Jon Scott (dr). The band toured in late 2012 before recording and packed out the Hoxton venue, Charlie Wright’s, for their appearance at the London Jazz Festival.

When not busy with his own projects, Kristian appears with the innovative SECollective in bands such as Acrobat, Draw by Four and is also in a long lasting work relationship with the lyrical jazz/folk vocalist Monika Lidke. He was nominated in 2012 for the “Take Five” project run by Serious and has worked and performed throughout the UK and Europe with a great range of groups and performers, including Antonio Zambrini, Will Vinson, Tommaso Starace, Laurence Cottle, Archie Shepp, Ivo Neame, Jim Hart and Gareth Lockrane.
