Les has written the well known French hit "La Chansons Des Souvenirs" ("Song Of A Thousand Voices") for the famous French songstress Mireille Mathieu and the Latin Pop icon Roberto Jordan ("Donde"). He has played Mellotron, 12 and 6-string Guitar, Bass and Piano on dozens of Top 40 hit records throughout the early 1970's , scoring many US and UK chart placings throughout his career.

To date, Les has released 20 solo CD's on his RRO Entertainment Indie label and has had over 500,000 downloads bringing him several substantial hits on Apple iTunes and other download sites across the Internet. Nowadays, Les has been developing new techniques for the Starr Labs Ztar MIDI Guitar. He combines two handed tapping, finger picking and Ableton Live Clip triggering into a seamless new technique, never before seen on MIDI Guitar.
He even has discarded traditional Chromatic scales in favor of an 8 Multi layered mapping tuning system, never before used in Classical Crossover or Rock Music.

His current music is a mixture of various influences and signposts including Classical, Progressive Rock, Bach, Vivaldi, Electronic, Ambient and Guitar Instrumental. Robert Fripp once remarked in Guitar Player Magazine: "There is a new music to go with this new instrument. Therein lies my interest in the guitar synthesizer. That something entirely new will appear." This COULD be it! Come have a look and listen to the MIDI Guitar sound of the future.
