Tommy Emmanuel says
Two-time GRAMMY nominee Tommy Emmanuel is one of Australia’s most respected musicians. With a professional career spanning five decades, Tommy has garnered hundreds of thousands of loyal fans worldwide.

Chet Atkins honored Tommy with the title of “Certified Guitar Player” for his contribution to guitar music, a very rare distinction shared by only four other people in the world. After an amazing performance with his brother Phil at the Sydney Olympic Games Closing Ceremony, the world wanted to know who this mysterious Australian guitar virtuoso was. In 2001, Tommy released his first solo-acoustic album, ONLY and his popularity has grown by leaps and bounds aided by a non-stop touring schedule and increasing exposure in the media.

His album The Mystery earned him another Grammy nomination, and in 2008 Guitar Player Magazine and Acoustic Guitar Magazine named him Best Acoustic Guitarist and Gold Medalist in the in the Readers’ Choice and Players’ Choice Awards. Guitar Player’s 2010 Readers Choice awards named him Best Acoustic Guitarist for the second time!

In all, Tommy’s catalogue includes over 22 musical recordings of solos, duets, ensembles, cover tunes, originals, utilizing both electric and acoustic guitar. He has made 6 live performance DVDs, 6 additional instructional DVDs and CDRoms, and he regularly teaches master classes while on the road. Performing live for his fans is extremely important to Tommy: he has demonstrated this by playing close to or over 300 concerts every year for the last seven years! Guitar players of all levels come to his shows to watch him work his magic, but his appeal goes far beyond musicians. His live shows are known for their humor, performance, passion, and infectious
joy.

Tommy Emmanuel’s message is just pure love for the music and his delight in sharing it with the world, one audience at a time.
