Beyond Q is hosting Michael Lemmer.
So who is Michael Lemmer?
Michael is a quiet, almost shy retiring kind of guy until he picks up his slide guitar and lets his music speak.
Well then – jaws drop as the quiet guy channels Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page – who all flirted with slide.
If you listen hard you will even hear a little touch of George Harrison – one of the world’s most influential guitarists who started playing slide in 1969 – albeit in a non blues style.
Michael will mesmerize you with his dexterity and intensity. It’s no wonder he has supported artists such as John King Cleary, Stephen Cummings, Phil Emmanuel, Mick Thomas and the Sure Thing.
Even the hardest to excite, jaded music reporters like The SMH’s Chris Johnson, have said “a guitarist whose prowess on the steel-bodied National tri-cone resonator is impressive . . . . a sound that can only be created with an excellent understanding of how sweetly a resonator guitar can sing”.
You haven’t heard of him? Fix that while you can!
