Fusing folk, jazz, pop and classical styles, Laurence Juber creates a multifaceted performance that belies the use of only one instrument. The former lead guitarist for Paul McCartney’s ‘Wings’ (winner, Best Rock Instrumental GRAMMY for the track ‘Rockestra’ from the Wings album “Back To The Egg”), Juber has developed a reputation as a world-class guitar virtuoso solo artist, composer and arranger and was voted #1 by Fingerstyle Guitar magazine.
Laurence Juber has released 17 critically acclaimed solo albums, including “Guitarist” and “PCH.” His solo CD, “Pop Goes Guitar,” includes the arrangement of “Stand By Me” that was heard nationally in the ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ commercial. His last release, “Wooden Horses,” showcases LJ’s compositions for solo guitar, and his brand new CD, “LJ Plays The Beatles, Vol. 2,” is a follow-up to “LJ Plays The Beatles,” which is one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s all-time Top Ten acoustic albums. Juber is featured on the CD ‘Poppin’ Guitars,’ a tribute to the music of the Sherman BBrothers, and can be seen in the documentary film, The Brothers, about those celebrated Disney composers. As a studio musician, his playing can be currently heard on ABC Family channel’s hit show The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Juber has also co-composed the soundtrack of the upcoming Blizzard Entertainment video game “Diablo 3” and crafted the score to the NBC Dateline documentary “Children Of The Harvest” which aired on July 18th. His signature OM28LJ guitar is available from C.F.Martin & Co (est 1833). For more information on Laurence Juber visit the Laurence Juber website.
