Two-time GRAMMY® winner
Recording Artist & Concert Guitarist
Studio Musician on award-winning records, movies and TV shows
Lead Guitarist for Paul McCartney’s Wings
A world-class guitar virtuoso solo performer, recording artist, composer and arranger, his playing fuses folk, jazz, blues, pop and classical styles, creating a multi-faceted performance that belies the use of only one instrument.
Inspired by the wave of Beatlemania that swept the UK in 1963, Laurence Juber developed a passion for the guitar and the ambition to make playing it his career.
Becoming one of London’s top studio guitarists, his playing was featured on the soundtrack of The Spy Who Loved Me, as well as recordings by The Alan Parsons Project, Cerrone, Sarah Brightman, Rosemary Clooney, Charles Aznavour, Lucio Battiste and Colin Blunstone, among many others.
In 1978, Juber was plucked from the studio world by Paul McCartney who asked him to play lead guitar in what was to become the final incarnation of Paul’s post-Beatles group Wings.
Laurence recorded and toured with the band for three years, during which time they won a Grammy® and scored numerous chart hits.
When Wings folded in 1981, the guitarist relocated to the USA and settled in Los Angeles to raise a family. Since then, he has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand studio players and has gained world-wide recognition as a virtuoso concert performer, recording artist and composer. He has released over 20 albums, including LJ Plays The Beatles, which was voted one of Acoustic Guitar Magazine's' all-time Top Ten.
His ‘photo memoir’ Guitar With Wings is a 250-page career retrospective coffee-table book including a unique collection of unseen photographs, stories and memorabilia that show Paul McCartney and Wings at work and play. Published by Dalton Watson Fine Books in May 2014.

“LJ is a musical chameleon who shines brightly regardless of the landscape.”
-Will Turpin, Collective Soul
“The melodies, textures and harmonies he coaxes out of an acoustic guitar are absolutely spellbinding."
- Michael Molenda,
Guitar Player Magazine
"..........the notes spin out of the songs with such finesse and musical agility, it's hard to believe he has only 10 fingers and six strings."
- San Francisco Chronicle
