“Horne can play. Oh yes he can really play.” Powerplay
“Brilliant guitarist, great songs and an inspiration to work with.”
Darrin Mooney – Drummer for Primal Scream and Gary Moore
“Riffs and solos pour from Lachlan’s fingers with an ease that should make the competition weep … a name to catch for true rockers everywhere.”
“Sensational guitarist that always delivers exactly what I’m looking for. But what makes him so valuable is that he is always able to pull something amazing out of the bag when I don’t know what I want.”
Paul Zimmer of Zimmer Audio Productions (ZAP)
Lachlan first picked up the guitar at the age of fourteen and very soon after began his journey as a performing guitar player with a great future ahead of him. After a couple of years of self tuition Lachlan enrolled at The Guitar Institute in London and studied under distinguished guitar players such as Alan Limbrick, John Etheridge and Shaun Baxter. After a few more years of diligent music study, and a lifestyle centred around intensive guitar practice, he established himself as a professional musician and has since performed in numerous successful bands and acts both in the UK and Australia. He has been fortunate to have worked with a variety of talented musicians, most notably drummer and long term friend Darrin Mooney of Primal Scream and Gary Moore fame. Darrin plays drums on Lachlan’s first two albums.
He has played sessions and written music for a variety of music and media projects and his playing can be heard on computer games, radio commercials, an online slot machine and even as a theme on a roller coaster.The UK music manufacturer JHS liked his guitar playing so much they asked him to be an endorsee of their Vintage brand of guitars.
After spending most of his music career as a side man and session musician he stepped out of the shadows in 2004 by releasing his own instrumental rock album entitled The Time Has Come. This album, and his second release, The Horne Supremacy (2007/2009), which also highlighted his vocal talent, have both served to garner his well respected status as a guitarist and musician of great talent. His third release, Rock n Roll Ltd (2014) also features the mighty talents of bass player Alistair Begg and drummer John Weedon – his ‘house’ band. All three albums showcase his unrelenting talent at combining irresistibly catchy rock songs with great musicianship and technical prowess.
As well as being an artist in his own right he has earned a well deserved reputation as a leading exponent of contemporary rock guitar. When not performing or recording his own music, or playing on other projects, he manages a hectic teaching schedule and has a long waiting list of young guitar students eagerly waiting to learn from his skills.
