Jairus Mozee is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer who has been awarded no fewer than three Grammy awards for his work. He has played for and worked with some of the biggest names in today’s music, including Anderson .Paak, Christina Aguilera and the mighty Prince among many, many others. Looking through Jairus’s credits, it’s immediately obvious how in-demand he is. 

As with many neo-soul guitarists, Jairus started his musical journey playing guitar in his local church. His virtuosity was noticed at a young age, leading to him playing with musicians much older. At the age of 15, Jairus was playing guitar professionally and doing sessions for B2K. A couple of years later, at just 17, he was playing for Prince and spent five months in his house band.
