Klugh’s recordings received 13 GRAMMY® nominations (the latest for HandPicked) – and his collaboration with pianist Bob James. One on One walked away with the 1980 GRAMMY® Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album.
In 1989, Klugh released his first solo-guitar album, titled simply Solo Guitar. Sixteen years later, his second solo recording, Naked Guitar, earned Klugh his 11th GRAMMY® nomination. Both of those discs were not only popular, but they received high critical praise as well. HandPicked follows the same path, with iTunes honoring HandPicked as “one of the finest recordings in [Klugh’s] catalogue.”
