"Juber is a master of acoustic finger style, but with less of the trick-guitar mishmash that seemsobligatory among the high-octane pickers. He has a fluid style that shifts gears through simultaneous jazzy chording, leads, and bass lines, while weaving in and out of musical thoughtsfaster than a Formula One racer."- San Diego Reader
"He gloriously articulates the melodies and never succumbs to show-off playing. But the notesspin out of the songs with such finesse and musical agility, it's hard to believe he has only 10 fingers and six strings. Juber has made a rare acoustic guitar record with bark and bite. Hisplaying is just short of sleight of hand and, like all magicians, he makes it seem effortless."- San Francisco Chronicle
"Laurence Juber has redefined solo acoustic guitar playing.”- minor7th.com“
A master!”- Pete Townsend
“The melodies and textures and harmonies he coaxes out of an acoustic guitar are absolutelyspellbinding. And far from being just applications of technique that might appeal mostly toguitar snobs, Laurence's music always possesses an all-embracing melodic sensibility thatseduces non-players, as well. It also helps that he is a warm and quietly charismatic performer."- Guitar Player Magazine.
