Classical Guitarist SurreyThis Classical Guitarist performs a repertoire of up to date and specially arranged pop favourites alongside well known classical themes and some highly entertaining flamenco, making him a very popular choice for special occasions including corporate events, live music concerts, private parties and all exclusive occasions requiring the finest live music. 

As a solo guitarist he is gaining increasing acclaim for his performances and highly artistic approach to guitar playing.

He is a featured soloist at leading world venues, including The Royal Albert Hall and The Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. 

As well as taking a conventional approach during performance, he also incorporates looping layers of guitar to develop a musical tapestry before his audience to deliver the sound of an ensemble.

As a professional musician he has performed extensively throughout the UK as well as around the world, including exclusive performances on board the world’s number one ultra luxury cruise ship line Silversea.

This talented guitarist hails from the beautiful countryside of Surrey in England, he started playing guitar at the age of eight and later went on to study at the Academy of Contemporary Music – Europe’s leading school for rock and pop musicians, where he was honoured to study under some of the world’s leading guitarists.

In 2007 he performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall for The London Guitar Festival  coinciding with the UK release of his solo album ‘Oceano’.  Later that year he was asked to headline a reunion concert at The Windsor Arts Centre celebrating the Australian finger style guitar player Tommy Emmanuel.  As an in demand session guitar player, he has performed at many of the music festivals around the UK and performed at shows in connection with MTV, OXFAM, EMI music group as well as live on BBC TV and Radio. 

A superb technician with a charismatic presence, Byron’s individual style and affable nature make him a wonderful addition to private and corporate events where very high level of musicianship coupled with dedicated professionalism is required.
