Laurent Brondel

Laurent was born in Paris, France. As far as he can remember his life has been devoted to music. He went on his first tour with a band at age 17 and spent the next 18 years living as a professional musician. He also taught guitar, privately and in classes, for over 10 years. In the early 1990s he started working as a sound engineer and electronic musician, producing and mixing music for a handful of artists along with his own. He moved to New-York City in 1999 and since 2003 has lived with his wife, video artist Virginia Valdes, in the beautiful western mountains of Maine.

Early on Laurent's love for the guitar led him to study how the instrument is built, doing his own set-up and repair work. In his search for the perfect acoustic steel-string guitar he purchased many vintage instruments and began to restore and resell them. After a few years, still searching and having gained much experience in luthiery, the thought of building his own steel-string acoustic guitar came naturally. This was one of the most fulfilling experiences in his life and a true revelation. Until the end of 2007 he was part of Pantheon Guitars crew, working under the supervision of Dana Bourgeois.
