JUFFAGE I caught this guy at ArcTanGent festival 2015 having heard great things about him. My hopes were high and they were satiated. This man is a mercurial performer, one who arrests your attention as soon as you set eyes on him, intricately pedal switching whilst delicately intertwining vocal harmonies and psychedelic, celestial guitar tones. His recorded work is nothing short of spectacular. He is a major player in a resurgent and massively exciting Leeds music scene. All in all, he is a must for you to checkout
