Tommy Emmanuel: One-Man Band

Tommy Emmanuel created a life for himself as a one-man band and has become one of Australia’s most respected musicians. With light vim and pure talent, he demonstrates his unique playing style, which is notably a development of the Travis picking technique and blending of rhythm and melody.

In his career, he’s played on recordings for Air Supply and Men at Work and in his twenties he joined one of Australia’s biggest rock acts, Dragon. Now, as a two-time Grammy nominee with a career spanning five decades, he has, for several years, performed over 300 concerts annually. He’s worked with Martin Taylor on a jazz-inspired duet album The Colonel and the Governor. His most recent original material is Little By Little (2011).

The Story Is Not The Music

Who’s got the time? Beyonce may have delivered a video album that’s got the media and the punters bloviating, but very little of the discussion is about the music, because it’s become secondary to the game. That’s what music is today. I’m surprised Parker Brothers doesn’t have a label. Actually, there are multiple games involved….Read More
