Jesta Bit of Information

Jesta is the musical alter-ego of Bryan Page from Morecambe, United Kingdom specializing in genre-hopping Power Pop. Giving birth to quirky, entertaining songs that make you want to dance, laugh or say huh? wtf? Jesta isn't too concerned with getting too deep and meaningful - who has time for all that anyway? Let's party! Though essentially a one-man project, occasionally some fantastic guest artists are brought into the mix including some of the best session musicians in the U.K. Bryan has close to 20 years production experience and has learnt from, and befriended, some of the busiest people in the industry today.

Born in Chelmsford, Essex in 1975 Bryan was bottle-fed music by The Beatles, Electric Light Orchestra and Earth Wind & Fire along with classic 70's rock. Growing up the in the 80's Bryan was interested in record production at a very early age, mentally deconstructing albums by the likes of Bucks Fizz and Adam & The Ants. Eventually he began experimenting with reel-to-reel tape recording and learning classical guitar. As a teenager he learned his chops in Rock covers bands as lead guitarist and part-time vocalist.

The concept of Jesta began as a name for Bryan's personal music projects at around the same time as he began work in a recording studio, shortly before leaving school. Honing his production and vocal skills over the years, it is now time for Jesta to conquer the world or at least earn enough money to buy a couple of sandwiches!
