Hezron Chetty is an alternative violinist, songwriter and music producer from Rome,Italy . His music has
been described as powerfully emotive and is a multi-genre mix such as; World, Jazz, Rock and
Hezron trained with the classical method before studying a Diploma in Jazz at Durban University of
Technology. Questioning why the violin should only fall into a specific genre of classical or jazz, Hezron
began to work with other alternative acts to increase his ability and skills to accompany various artists in
music genres like Folk, Electronic, Rock, Pop, Psychedelic and Blues music.
It was in the thriving music scene of London where he spent five years performing with local bands and
touring Great Britain and Spain that he became a recording artist. Hezron began to push the musical
boundaries that are generally imposed on the violin and he learnt many new techniques. He began
practicing and performing relentlessly, jamming with any bands that were looking for a violinist to join
them. In 2015, Hezron released his debut solo album The Fallacy of Composition and went onto release
Dream Sound (2019) and Heads Or Tails (2020).
Hezron performs globally and has supported acclaimed acts like, Incubus, Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy),
Jocelyn Brown (Incognito), Finley Quaye, Paco Sery (Jaco Pastorius, Joe Zawinul) and Vieux Farka
Touré (Son of Ali Farka Touré).
