Thomas Leeb picked up the guitar for the same reason as every 13 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 15 and released his first acoustic guitar album at 17. 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 20 years by Acoustic Guitar Magazine. His particular 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 gave him a sense of timing and grove 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 5 minutes and then I heard him play , Jon Gomm awarded him 10 out of 10 Gomms and Guthrie Govan who thinks that what Thomas does on a acoustic guitar probably shouldn't be legal.
