Lou Lombardi is a guitarist well versed in most popular styles with over 20 years of live and studio experience. Lou Lombardi started performing on stage at the age of 10, playing drums with his father's gospel quartet. After years of piano and drum lessons he found his true calling, playing the guitar. Within a year of picking up his first six string, he started playing live shows with garage bands, gospel quartets and acoustic duos.
Desiring to hone his chops beyond basic rock and pop music he sought out the teaching talents of Pittsburgh guitar greats Tony Janflone Sr. and Eric Sousoff. Later, while majoring in English Literature in college, he studied classical guitar with Pittsburgh Symphony guitarist and cellist Irving Kauffman, at the same time working numerous big band and jazz combo sessions and shows.

In recent years Lou has worked with several well received bands including Wanton Records recording artists "Love in Ruins," with which he composed, arranged, and produced 3 CD's worth of music. He also has production, songwriting, and guitar credits to his name with quite a few other groups and artists such as, Billy Sunday, Pete Hewlett, Supermonkey, Julie Parker, Petey Gets Around, & Blue Food.

His latest studio endeavors consist of creating the sounds for "The Hug," a robot being developed by the Interaction Design Team at Carnegie Mellon University, and composing and recording the musical score for the short film "The Heidelberg Project." He is currently the owner of YourGuitarist.com, and the touring guitarist for The Shelley Duff Band. Lou Lombardi is interested in building long term relationships with other talented, songwriters, producers and musicians.
