Background

Thomas Lorenzo is a world renowned and award-winning guitarist, composer and music educator.

Thomas Lorenzo’s family fled the oppression of Spanish dictator Francisco Franco’s iron fist in the 1950s. They arrived in Australia, where they raised their son Thomas, who fell in love with the classical guitar of his birth country. He learned traditional flamenco songs that his family and other members of the Spanish diaspora kept alive in Melbourne. When Franco died in 1975 the Lorenzo family returned to Spain, where Thomas continued his guitar studies, gowing in expertise and acclaim. In 2012 he returned to live in Carnegie where he has a teaching academy.  He will perform, along with vocalist Angel Mellado, the traditional style of flamenco that was kept alive in Melbourne during Franco’s fascist reign.

Thomas has released five solo instrumental albums and 12 singles in contemporary Jazz, Blues and Flamenco styles. His latest release Spanish Breeze debuted at #36 on the Top 50 JazzWeek World Music Album Charts in 2010 .The album features Grammy nominee Alphonso Johnson (Weather Report, Grateful Dead) on Bass, Walfredo Reyes (Chicago) on Drums; produced by Grammy nominee Bruce Sugar (Ringo Starr).

Thomas appears an ABC Get Kracking   2017, The Frankston Cube, and 18 times at the Armadale Uniting Hall 2016-2018
