“The record is killing, such great musicianship!” Nile Rodgers
“Fantastic guitar player! Wow, this is such a beautiful piece of music!” Bob Clearmountain
With celebrity fans such as Chic’s Nile Rodgers and legendary engineer, Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen; David Bowie; Rolling Stones), Alberto Lombardi has already won legions of fans with his expressive guitar playing and rich songwriting but his latest single, “Start Again”, looks to catapult him in front of even larger audiences. “Start Again” is an intense and profound single which has at its lyrical heart some of the most beautiful lines from Dante’s Inferno, whilst Alberto’s extraordinary guitar work is nothing short of revelatory, a fitting showcase for one of Stratocaster’s greatest living exponents.
Coupled with a sumptuous video, it shimmers with the ageless sound of bands like The Eagles and a Sting-like vocal, yet feels completely contemporary.
He is currently touring with his Alberto Lombardi Stratocaster Tribute where he plays the great music of artists related to the iconic guitar, legends such as Clapton, Hendrix, Gilmour and Jeff Beck – although some of the concerts are having to be cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, which is currently hitting the music industry pretty hard.
