Early life

Becker started playing guitar at the age of four and was dubbed a child prodigy after appearing on Jonathan Brandmeier's radio show at ages 7, 8 and 9.

Worked with

Becker has recorded with guitarists Jason Becker, Todd Duane and Joe Kelley and on releases by Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, Jason Becker, Marty Friedman, Richie Sambora, Jeff Healey, Chris Poland, Bruce Kulick, Michael Angelo Batio, Steve Morse, Buckethead, Alex Skolnick, Bumblefoot, Blues Saraceno, Lars Eric Mattsson, Jeff Pilson, Mark Wood, Ron Keel, Randy Coven, Enuff Z'nuff and Trixter.

Musical style

Mike Varney, writing in Guitar Player magazine in 2005, said that "Becker is a very versatile and lyrical player who runs the gauntlet from shred to ear-catching, melodic instrumentals, at times bringing to mind players such as Joe Satriani and Eric Johnson"

Becker's guitar playing introduces techniques characteristically more advanced than the styles in which he writes, such as tapping and sweep-picking in blues or folk. In addition to writing and recording all the music on his records, he also played all the instruments (guitar, bass, piano, strings) except drums.

Becker stopped writing, playing and recording music in 2009 for personal reasons and resumed in 2015.
