“Riepler has a penchant for grooving, catchy, but heartfelt, tunes, as can be heard on his recent album Wild Life. The riff-based ‘Gillett Square Blues’ …. has a Miles-esque feel to it and sounds like it might have made the cut on one of that trumpeter’s stronger electric-period albums.” Graham Boyd, Jazzwise

Hannes Riepler grew up in Austria, studied jazz guitar in Amsterdam and moved to London in 2006, where he dived into the vibrant scene and played all over the city alongside fellow jazzers young and old. An energetic and inventive guitar player, spirited composer and host of the renowned Vortex Downstairs Jazz Night jam session, he has become a mover and shaker of jazz in London himself.

Riepler’s music is rooted in jazz tradition, contemporary and melodic, but always immediate and hot. Freewheeling at times, it thrillingly swings in New York Downtown style, which is perfectly matched by the fine musicians in his Quartet.

Hannes Riepler actively plays as bandleader and much sought-after sideman in the UK and abroad. He also holds teaching positions at Middlesex University as well as at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
