Jay Guru-Murthy Biography – Jay Guru-Murthy Wiki
Jay Guru-Murthy is the son of Krishnan Guru-Murthy with his wife Lisa Guru-Murthy. He is a member of the band Askew, alongside bandmates Eli Crossley, Alfie Lewis, Freddie Wormleighton and Will Pond. The band is one of the youngest bands to ever perform at the Glastonbury Festival.
The band’s performance at the 2023 Glastonbury Festival came about when Eli appeared on a BBC Breakfast interview in which he spoke about the genetic condition he lives with, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, as well as mentioning his love of music and how his dream was to one day play at the festival. Eli Crossley, from London, was diagnosed with the disease at the age of 3. The progressive life-limiting condition causes all the muscles in the body to gradually weaken.
“Lots of people saw it and were sending messages saying ‘Get Eli to Glastonbury’ and ‘This kid sounds pretty good you should let him play’, and were tagging Emily Eavis,” Eli said in a previous interview.
Island Records’ Jon Turner was in the audience for a school musical performance in which Askew performed, due to his son being at the same school, and was also impressed with what he heard. He got in touch with someone who knew Eavis, who then decided to give Askew the chance to play at the festival.
