Umar Jawfu (Portraits)

Umar Jawfu is the talented Guitarist/Songwriter of the band Threadstone. Umar is an avid reader and a whole-hearted lover of music.

I have known Umar for about seven years, as he was my first real guitar teacher (more like he played and I watched). In all these years, through his various changes in hairstyle and beard design, one thing has remained consistent about Umar: his insatiable quest for knowledge--knowledge of songwriting, guitar techniques, performance, worship, and on and on. For this reason, every time I see Umar after any period of time, he always seems to know or do something better than the last time. 

This is Umar. Umar is extremely talented. Umar is not proud and continues to learn. Be like Umar.
