Spanish guitarist Unai Iker first developed an interest in music at the age of 5 when his parents sent him to classical piano lessons. At the age of 12, influenced mainly by rock, he realised that what he really wanted was to play the electric guitar.
He is a versatile player, who has considerable expertise in many genres: rock, blues, funk, country, acoustic, and pop. He is also an accomplished slide guitar player.
He began his higher education in music in Barcelona at the renowned “L’aula de Musica Moderna y Jazz” when he was 18, graduating in 2009. The following two years were spent in London playing with several bands, before moving back to his native Spain in 2011. He has since been consistently involved with the local music scene, doing sessions for many artists, and also playing soul, funk, blues/rock with artists such as Tim Austin Mitchell (James Brown) and Molly Duncan (Average White Band, Marvin Gaye, Eric Clapton).
He has also established himself as an instructor, teaching at several local private schools and publishing tutorials in guitar magazines.
In 2014 he teamed up with the singer Marian Lush to form Unai & Lush, a musical duo which remains active to date.
He is endorsed by Lsl Instruments, Knaggs Guitars, Musicman Guitars, Bigtone Amplification, Two Notes Audio Engineering, Deeflexx, AMT Electronics, Harvest Fine Leather Bags, The Rock Slide etc.
