He’s playing the same 12 notes that the rest of us are using, but what he achieves with it is pretty monumental.” – Joe Satriani

He’s one of the best guitar players I’ve ever seen.” – Chet Atkins

Tommy Emmanuel is a virtuoso guitarist whose real-time exuberance and infectious joy illuminates everything he does. He is known for his ability to play three parts at once with pure heart and real soul. His fans love his unbound talent and the magic he brings to every performance. His 2018 album, Accomplice One, featured duets with a range of musicians, and now, his highly anticipated sequel, Accomplice Two, is set to be released. Tommy’s new television special, Accomplice LIVE!, features some of his best-known songs and duets with accomplices such as Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell.
