A native Australian, Emmanuel's career spans three decades and continues to intersect with some of the finest musicians in the world time and time again. Tommy's unique style - he calls it simply "finger style" - is akin to playing guitar the way a pianist plays a piano. Tommy not only is a very accomplished guitarist, but also plays drums and sings. Jazz legend Chet Atkins was one of the first people who inspired Emmanuel to pick up a guitar. Decades later, Atkins himself became one of Emmanuel's biggest fans, and is responsible for declaring Emmanuel a "Certified Guitar Player" - an honor shared by only two other people in the world (Jerry Reed and John Knowles). In his storied career, the Grammy-nominated Emmanuel has set sales records that have yet to be broken and performed alongside hundreds of other musical legends including Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton, Sir George Martin, Hank Marvin and Joe Walsh. The consummate musician was voted Rolling Stone (Australia) Magazine's "Most Popular Guitarist" for two consecutive years and has earned four Platinum and three Gold albums.
