French-born guitarist and composer Stephane Wrembel, who learned his craft from the Roma musicians at campsites in the French countryside, is a virtuoso who has truly begun to make his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music. Now based in Brooklyn, Wremble built his reputation as a stylist in the mode of Django Reinhardt, but now revels in transcending and expanding his craft to include myriad influences, touching on everything from blues to flamenco to rock. Called “a revelation” by Rolling Stone Magazine, Wremble composed the soundtrack for Woody Allen’s 2008 film, Vicki Cristina Barcelona and was again recruited by Allen to score the theme to his 2012 Academy Award winning film Midnight in Paris. He has toured with violinist Mark O’Connor, opened for Patti Smith, recorded his third CD with David Grisman and his highly anticipated fifth release, Origins, is due out this year.
