Short biography:

The international respected harmonica player Filip Jers (b. 1986) has been called ”Swedish Harmonica Sensation” by the music critics in Europe. He plays all sorts of harmonicas; from the sophisticated chromatic harmonica to the earthy bluesharp and the very rare and mysterious bassharmonica. He also performs on jawharp, guitar and accordion.

Filip loves to improvise and compose music and moves easily between jazz, blues, folk, world music, country, pop, rock, classical and film music.

He became double worldchampion on harmonica at the age of 18 at World Harmonica Festival 2005 in Trossingen, Germany. Since then he has worked as freelance musician, with studiosessions and teaching harmonica. He tours a lot and has visited 17 countries to play music, for example: Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, France, Spain, Portugal, Romania, Croatia, Holland, Finland and Canada.

Filip Jers received his master degree in jazz from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm in 2011, being the first harmonicaplayer ever to study there.
