Quist - aka Jacob Quistgaard

Quist – aka Jacob Quistgaard – was born in Copenhagen, Denmark. He first picked up his father’s acoustic guitar at age 6, learning chords and Dylanesque finger picking from his father and a local teacher. After cutting his teeth in his first bands, Quist moved to London as a teenager, studying Jazz for 4 years at the Royal Academy of Music on a scholarship.

He initially made a name for himself as a session guitarist in the UK, most recently as lead guitarist with British rock legend Bryan Ferry (Roxy Music) – featuring on Ferry’s album Avonmore (2014), alongside Nile Rodgers, Mark Knopfler, Johnny Marr, Flea and Marcus Miller – touring the world for several years in various incarnations of Bryan Ferry’s band.

Quist has performed all over the world, including at The Royal Albert Hall, The Hollywood Bowl, Coachella, Glastonbury and Abbey Road Studios, as well as on many prime time international TV & radio shows.
