Laurence Juber is a solo performer, recording artist, composer and arranger. His playing fuses folk, jazz, blues, pop and classical styles, creating a multi-faceted performance that belies the use of only one instrument.  First internationally recognized as lead guitarist in Paul McCartneys Wings, with whom he won a Grammy®, Juber has since established himself as world-renowned guitar virtuoso and entertainer.

Juber, known to his fans as LJ, has recorded more than two dozen albums which spotlight his unique touch and tone on acoustic guitar. His latest release,  A Day In My Life, is a collection of a dozen of his celebrated arrangements of Beatles songs recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios.

His LJ Plays The Beatles! was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine‘s all-time Top Ten albums. His solo arrangement  and performance of The Pink Panther Theme earned him a second Grammy®.

As a studio musician, he can be heard on recordings from artists as diverse as Harry Styles, Dan Hicks & The Hot Licks, and the French chanteuse Sylvie Vartin. His playing is featured on the soundtracks to hundreds of TV shows such as Home Improvement, and movies including the academy award-winning Dirty Dancing, Good Will Hunting and Pocahontas. He is a James Bond enthusiast, and can be heard on the soundtrack to The Spy Who Loved Me.

Juber co-composed the soundtrack of the award-winning video game Diablo III. His music is also featured in the Ken Burns’ documentary The Tenth Inning. With his wife Hope, he composed the score to A Very Brady Musical and the ever-popular Gilligan’s Island: The Musical.  He is the arranger for Part Of  The Plan, a musical featuring songs by Dan Fogelberg.
