2 Mio. YouTube-Klicks!

Thomas LeebDer in Kalifornien lebende Österreicher gehört zur Weltspitze der modernen Fingerstyle-Gitarristen. Sein Pink Floyd Cover „Comfortably Numb“ liegt bei über 2 Mio. You-Tube-Klicks. Mike Dawes (4 Mio. Klicks für „Somebody that I used to know“) ist großer Thomas Leeb Fan. Wunderbar melodische eigene Kompositionen wechseln sich ab mit genialen Cover-Arrangements. Thomas Leeb ist Candyrat-Artist und befindet sich auf diesem amerikanischen Record-Label in bester Gesellschaft der innovativsten zeitgenössischen Akustik-Gitarristen, Guitar-Tapper und Guitar-Harp-Harmonic-Spieler unseres Planeten: Andy McKee, Calum Graham, Ewan Dobson, Antoine Dufour … Wie viele seiner Kollegen wurde auch er durch den legendären Michael Hedges inspiriert. Das Acoustic Guitar Magazine bewertete Thomas Leebs CD „Desert Pirate“ von 2007 als eines der besten Gitarrenalben der letzten 20 Jahre. Guitarheroe Jon Gomm bezeichnet Thomas Leeb als einen „10-fachen Jon Gomm“! 3 Jahre lang studierte Thomas Leeb afrikanische Musik und wurde dadurch zu einem perkussiven Groove-Master auf der akustischen Gitarre. Er unterrichtet Master-Classes, gibt weltweit Workshops und tourt permanent rund um den Globus.

Thomas Leeb picked up the guitar for the same reason as every thirteen-year-old boy: he wanted to meet girls. He soon fell in love with the instrument, played his first solo concert at the age of fifteen and released his first acoustic guitar album at seventeen. Leeb is a frequent performer at concerts and festivals in Asia, the Americas and Europe and has been featured in numerous guitar magazines all over the world. Every year, he teaches workshops and master classes in universities and colleges and his album “Desert Pirate” was voted one of the essential albums of the last twenty years by Acoustic Guitar Magazine.

His peculiar guitar style owes as much to percussive techniques as traditional fingerstyle guitar. What sets Thomas Leeb apart from some of his contemporaries is his ability to make pyrotechnics serve the music. Three years studying West African traditional music give him a sense of timing and groove that is unusual in a guitarist. All this has earned him a loyal world-wide following and influential fans such as Eric Roche who was his guitar teacher, “for about five minutes and then I heard him play”, Jon Gomm awarded him “ten out of ten Gomms” and Guthrie Govan who thinks that “what Thomas does on an acoustic guitar probably shouldn’t be legal.”
