Juan Zelada

Independent Artist

Brought up in a musical environment of family jam sessions, it’s not surprising Zelada would develop his talents naturally. In 2006 he completes a musical scholarship at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts where he receives recognition for best songwriting from Sir Paul Mcartney himself. He then moves to London where he sets up a band earning a great reputation within the live circuit, including a support tour for Amy Winehouse on her Back to Black tour. In 2011, the self-released single “Breakfast in Spitalfields” becomes a national success, becoming the most aired song on BBC radio 2 only behind Adele. A year later, the album “High Ceilings & Collar bones” (Decca Records) is released, including the Itunes single of the week “The Blues Remain”, which is also included in the BBC2 A Playlist along with 3 other singles in that album.
