Album Notes
This is the instrumental side of Lauren Passarelli. For her vocal songs check out Lauren's CDs under her band name, TWO TRU. [Links below for the CDs Shadow Language & Among The Ruins]

Back to the Bone features all instrumental guitar originals that pleasantly let you dream while listening. Some songs are layered with several guitars some are solo guitar features. Some songs are performed on acoustic guitar, some are performed on electric guitar. They float & haunt & nudge & pull, leaving the listener feeling calm & fed.

When you're influenced by some of the finest guitar players that ever graced our planet & you eat sleep & drink guitar from a tender age; music, personality, awareness & self are developed together. It's where living & expression & breathing are one in the same.

Lauren Passarelli is a master guitar player & musician's musician. She's a guitar player who has a feel & tone that personifies the notes she chooses. Clever & articulate her playing flows & looks effortless to create. The trademark of an expert. It looks so easy when played and it sounds brilliant. It's all about touch & feel. The magic happens with her hands, at her fingertips.

The songs on Back to the Bone don't sound like "guitar songs". They sound like compositions arranged for guitar. The interesting thing is they were all composed on guitar. A testimony to the depth of understanding Lauren has for the guitar. To her the guitar is as versatile an instrument as piano.

Lauren writes in standard & alternate tunings & the liner notes include the tunings as well as the guitars played for these recordings.

Lauren was the lead guitarist for the Beatle's tribute Band, ALL TOGETHER NOW known for their astonishing vocal blend & accurate arrangements of Beatle records down to the finest details from 1995 to 2007. Check out the Beatles lead guitar parts come alive on hundreds of videos on youtube.

Lauren's original pop/rock band, TWO TRU combines all her favorite musical influences: The Beatles, James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Pat Metheny Stevie Wonder, Carly Simon & many many more. Two Tru's latest release, Shadow Language was a top 5 finalist in the Independent Music Awards.

An inch away from going on tour with Pat Metheny, Pat sat across from Lauren in her living room & looked her straight in the eye & said, "You're a great guitar player". It's a wonderful thing to have a mentor's blessing smile upon you.

Lauren Passarelli has been a professor at Berklee College of Music in the largest guitar department in the world since 1984.

Incredible range of sensitivity expressed, phenomenal talent ......
I was very impressed with the originality of the album cover as well as the phenomenal amount of talent exemplified in the music. Lauren definitely has a "gift"....The songs express quite a variety of feelings and emotions, the guitar playing is a manifestation of incredible talent, and I enjoyed the instrumentals very much....

Forrest McFarland

Just an exquisite presentation of instrumentals. Lauren's melodies are interwoven with percussive rhythms that beg the listener's recapitulation only to discover another of Lauren's subtlties.

Dan Jackson

Your music has very cool textures
Nice Tunes, LP! The album cover and booklet are quite nicely done as well. Your music has very cool textures -- and thanks for listing the tunings on
the liner notes. Kudos to you.

Wow can SHE play!
I've seen this woman in concert. Wow can SHE play! Everybody can make music now clicking & looping using virtual instruments. It's definitely not the same thing. You've got to hear this cd & her album Shadow Language & you'll know what I mean. Celebrate real musicians! Spread the word listen to Two Tru & Lauren's guitar stuff. Outstanding.

Joan Barnsfield

This was on Passions!!!
So I'm rushing home to watch my favorite show, Passions and I can't believe it, I hear this beautiful song Northwest Passage on the show. I knew it sounded familar & I was so psyched I was right. First song on this disc. You'll love it. It's sexy. This was on Passions!

Ruth Mendelson, Composer

real music
Back To The Bone is really beautiful work. So much heart and so well
recorded! What a relief to actually hear real music that isn't out to
prove anything but just Be itself.  A real Gift.


Normally I'm not a big fan of instrumental guitar albums...
...but I make an exception for this one. Very nice composition and a relaxed, confident style make this album worthy of a 5 start rating. Lauren is one of my favorite guitar players, even though this puts her in what would seem like some rather strange company (Vai, Malmsteen, Jeff Beck). Check it out. You'll be glad you did!

Esther Peres, film maker

Love this CD
Love this CD, keep playing that divine guitar of yours.

Amazing Music
What a fantastic album! Can't stop listening to these songs. Lauren's ability to bring such feeling and emotion into each song is incredible. A wonderful album to just get lost in, as are all of Lauren's albums. Get this album and enjoy!
