It is rare to come across a musician whose vision for his instrument is so vastly expansive as that of Swiss-born Nicolas Meier. Even rarer still is finding a level of creative brilliance, precision and an almost reverential sensitivity delivered with conviction and authority, no less! in so many distinctly different musical settings but here's your proof! - VALERY AMADOR, BASS MUSICIAN MAGAZINE

Guitarist Nicolas Meier is blessed with precise intonation, fluid technique and mastery of a range of different styles. - BRUCE LINDSEY, ALL ABOUT JAZZ

In October 2017, MEIER BUDJANA GROUP will tour Europe promoting their newest releases on Steve Vai's Favored Nations: "Infinity" (Nicolas Meier) and "Zentuary" (Dewa Budjana).
