Stuart Weber’s passion for the guitar was ignited early on when at age 12 when a cousin loaned him a flood-ravaged folk guitar. Undaunted by its poor condition, Weber began a ravenous period of self-study, which carried him through his teenage years and beyond.
A native of the Northern Rocky Mountains, Weber is deeply influenced by the spirit of the American West. He credits the long harsh winters of Montana for giving him time and space to develop as an artist.
Weber draws inspiration for his compositions from the natural environment, bringing to life images of rugged landscapes with uncompromising virtuosity, prompting The Denver Post to praise Weber as “a Western original.”
