Chris Mahoney has been called "An up and coming guitar player who's really doing something different with the instrumental guitar sound."
Michael Molenda of Guitar Player Magazine says, "He has a soaring tone and a wonderful sense of melody. Keep an ear or two on this guy!"
His debut album scored high with many high profile guitar magazines, major rock radio stations and record companies alike. It "showcases not only great playing, but an eclectic mix of elements not fully explored in this genre."
Strong melodies, great grooves and electronic elements are some of the ways to describe this "fresh approach" to instrumental guitar music. Players and non players alike have been "mesmerized and captivated by his unique style and presence."
He has shared stages with such acts as Steve Vai, Al DiMeola, Gov't Mule, Stryper, Blue Oyster Cult and more. In addition, he has also been invited to share CD space with guitarists such as BB King, Steve Vai, Zack Wylde, Steve Morse, Jimmy Page, Yngwie Malmsteen and others.
