The man Guitar Player magazine has graced with multiple awards is the same man the Queen made a Member of the Order of Australia, his homeland. Tommy Emmanuel is no stranger to accolades and awards. Heís a gifted guitarist with a technical gift shared by few, and heís on tour after releasing Itís Never Too Late, the first regular studio album featuring Emmanuel completely solo without guests since 2000. A friend and follower of the late Chet Atkins Ė who christened Emmanuel a Certified Guitar Player, making him one of only five musicians to receive the C.G.P. distinction from the master Ė Emmanuel easily skates between musical styles, playing with blues, infusing his music with Spanish rhythms and exploring folk. For all of the masterful technique and flashy ability thatís brought Emmanuel recognition among the worldís greatest guitarists, his fingerstyle playing is what lets the audience know he is one of them. That click conveys warmth and humanity. And it demonstrates an honesty in the sound. Itís that integrity that makes Itís Never Too Late a guitar album thatís believable to both studied guitarists and everyday music fans.
