Fingerstyle guitarist Brooks Robertson doesn’t need much more than two thumbs, eight fingers, and six strings on a wooden box to carry listeners away. He utilizes superb technical ability to play bass, rhythm, and melody simultaneously and surpass the borders of conventional genres.

Hailed by prominent exponents of his instrument such as Nokie Edwards, Thom Bresh, John Jorgenson, and Mason Williams, he merges hauntingly beautiful compositions, country rhythms, and jazzy harmonies with funky licks into his very own art form—sometimes delivered with a punch, sometimes with a smile.
