Mark Lettieri is a GRAMMY-winning guitarist, composer, producer, and instructor based in Fort Worth, TX. Best known for his work with leading instrumental bands Snarky Puppy and The Fearless Flyers, he also composes and produces guitar instrumental music under his own name. Proficient in a multitude of styles, he has recorded and performed in virtually every genre of popular music with both independent and major-label artists.
Playing in the vibrant Metroplex gospel and R&B scene led Lettieri to join jazz/world group Snarky Puppy in 2008, where he contributes as guitarist, as well as arranger and composer. Outside of Snarky Puppy, Lettieri has released six albums as a leader. Due in large part to Lettieri’s vibrant social media presence, these records have created a sizable buzz among fans of instrumental music worldwide, enabling him to tour internationally with his quartet, the Mark Lettieri Group. In 2018, Lettieri joined up with Vulpeck-produced group The Fearless Flyers, featuring Cory Wong and Joe Dart of Vulfpeck on guitar and bass respectively, and drummer Nate Smith. As an in-demand session guitarist and touring sideman, Lettieri has logged miles with neo-soul icon Erykah Badu, gospel singer Anthony Evans, and American Idol: Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips.
