As a young working musician in London, England in the 1970s, Laurence Juber got an extraordinary, life-changing break when Paul McCartney hand-picked him to become Wings¹ lead guitarist. Juber spent three years recording and touring the world with the band, and during that time he also won a Best Rock Instrumental GRAMMY® Award for the track "Rockestra" from the Wings album Back To The Egg.

After Wings disbanded in 1981, Juber embarked on a career as a solo artist, composer and arranger, and soon developed a reputation as a world-class guitar virtuoso, recently being voted #1 by Fingerstyle Guitar magazine. He has released 11 critically acclaimed solo albums, including "LJ Plays the Beatles" and his latest, "One Wing", featuring popular Wings tunes like "Live and Let Die".

As a studio and touring musician he has worked with such artists as George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Al Stewart, Air Supply, Paul Williams and The Monkees. His guitar playing is featured on films such as "Dirty Dancing", "The Big Chill", "Good Will Hunting" and many others. His television credits include "Home Improvement", "Seventh Heaven", and most recently "Eight Simple Rules"
