Tommy Emmanuel

Tommy Emmanuel, four-time winner of Australia's Best Guitarist award, has helped bring the art of rock guitar down under to a higher awareness over his two-decade-long career by bringing a sense of jazz improvisation into a mix that also includes blues, country, rock, classical, and Spanish music. After years as a popular sideman and ace songwriter, the two-time ARIA (Aussie Grammys equivalent) award winner launched his solo career in 1988 with Up from Down Under. Several releases have followed, most notably 1993's critically acclaimed The Journey, which hit high on Gavin and Radio & Records NAC airplay charts. He has shown a mastery and affinity for both electric and acoustic axes and has been singled out by the likes of notable musicians such as Chet Atkins -- with whom he recorded The Day Finger Pickers Took Over the World in 1997 -- and Todd Rundgren, who considers him an innovator on the instrument. Only appeared in 2001, followed by 2002's Endless Road (it was finally released in the U.S. three years later), 2005's Live One, and 2006's Happy Hour (with Jim Nichols) and Mystery.

Although Emmanuel took a brief hiatus from the music industry at the end of 2007 for health reasons, that October he recorded all three nights of a residency at the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico, California. These recordings would make up the acclaimed double-CD live set that was released as Center Stage in April 2008. Equally well-received was 2010’s Little by Little, a comeback of sorts in the form of a double-studio album which featured a tasteful rendition of Carole King's "Tapestry." 2011’s All I Want for Christmas nodded in places to John Fahey's classic festive recordings, while 2013’s The Colonel & The Governor saw him team up with the equally talented English guitarist Martin Taylor. ~ Jonathan Widran & James Wilkinson, Rovi

Relatively new to listening to his body of work and recently saw him in concert in Dearborn. Oh my word but this guy knows how to extract beautiful music out of a guitar. He is also very giving and a ton of youtube vids showing how to improve your playing. Makes me wish I worked more on finger picking, but I can still enjoy. If he gets in your area, go see him!

I've seen Tommy twice this year and will continue every chance I get. If you get even a remote chance to make it to one of his shows don't pass it up!!

This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either be kissed or asked out. If you break this chain, you will see a little girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry.

I've had the pleasure of seeing Tommy many times over 20 yrs and getting to meet him . He truly is the worlds finest guitarist and showman!! My father played in Chet Atkins era and would have been amazed at what Tommy has brought to the instrument!! ! Wish I had turned pops on to him before he passed. He would have been amazed. Knoppler Atkins and Gilmore were his favorites. RIP Papasan

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this do don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this so scary because it actually works

The best, all around guitar player ever. I've seen him play rock, jazz, folk, country, classical, in addition to his own unique approach to any style of any song he plays. To the non-player his music is always pleasing, yet I wish there was some way that audience could understand all of the seemingly simple yet incredibly complex mastery he posseses. Just ask any good player to play "TICKET TO RIDE" keeping the bass riff going AND riffing effortlessly against this persistant background. Impos

The bio should open with "one of the world's best guitarist ..." If you have never seen him live you are missing a rare treat. Two hours by himself with nothing but a guitar! Mind blowing. It's like he has two sets of hands. Simply astounding.
