Skilled as a self-taught songwriter and music composer, Lorne Hind’s instrumental music leaves listeners speechless. He’s kick-ass, hard edge and soulful. His solos are mind boggling and fans view him as a phenomenal guitarist.
Lorne’s skills as a professional guitarist elevate him to the level of the masters and, he continues to evolve. He is extremely versatile and well disciplined. His foundation is solid playing instrumental, country music, hard rock and R&B. In his spare time, he likes to dabble with jazz music. It is not unusual for him to be compared to the likes of Joe Satriani, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Carlos Santana.
Lorne began his musical career in his hometown of Whitby, Ontario where at the age of 9 he was enrolled in the prestigious Royal Conservatory of Music. As a student he was taught music theory, classical guitar and went on to learn about the electric guitar. This is where he found his first love. His knowledge of music theory was a little shaky in the beginning stages but, that didn’t stop him from forming a teenage garage band. At the age of 16, his parents moved the family to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
While residing in the USA, Lorne concentrated his efforts on teaching himself more about music theory and the structure of songwriting.
Once he graduated from college, Lorne found his way back to Ontario where he currently resides. He has traveled with cover bands, touring and performing in countries such as Dubai, Europe and parts of the United States (California, Mississippi, Florida, and Las Vegas). He went on to form his own cover band (Fusique) that performed on international cruise-lines. When not cruising with the band, he hired himself out as a studio guitarist/session player for music projects.
Realizing that the road he was on was leading to nowhere, Lorne began to experience feelings of uneasiness being onstage playing someone else’s hits. But because he possesses a tremendous amount of self-discipline, his audience would not be able to detect this uneasiness. Growing tired of playing in cover bands, Lorne took a break from the cover scene to do some soul-searching. He found that the uneasiness he was experiencing came from a voice within that was telling him he was not doing was he was meant to do. He came to the decision that it was time to strike out on his own. It was time to create Lorne’s music. And this is where Lorne Hind 360º was born.
