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.

He is featured on the CD Poppin’ Guitars, a tribute to the music of the Sherman Brothers, and can be seen in the documentary film, The Brothers, about those celebrated Disney composers.

As a studio musician, his playing can be heard on such ling-running TV shows including Roseanne, Home Improvement and Seventh Heaven. He is currently featured on the score to ABC Family channel’s hit show The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

As a composer, Juber has contributed the soundtrack of the upcoming Blizzard Entertainment video game Diablo III and crafted the score to the recent NBC Dateline documentary Children Of The Harvest. His music is also featured in the Ken Burns documentary The Tenth Inning.
