About Laurence Juber:

Fusing folk, jazz,and pop styles, two-time Grammy-winner Laurence Juber creates a multifaceted performance that belies the use of only one acoustic guitar. 

The former lead guitarist for Paul McCartney's Wings (with whom he earned a Grammy award), Juber is a world-renowned guitar virtuoso, composer and arranger.

He has released 18 critically acclaimed solo albums, including LJ, Mosaic, Guitarist and PCH. His solo arrangement of The Pink Panther earned him a second Grammy. His 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 latest CD is a Vol 2 follow-up to LJ Plays The Beatles, which is one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's' all-time Top Ten acoustic albums.
