I have studied, performed and recorded jazz, Indian Classical Music, blues, rock, metal, reggae, folk and a host of other forms. Now I am blending all of these influences into a multi-faceted approach that is about music and its special connection to our lives.

For me, it is less about being a 'guitarist' then it is about being a musician. For me, music has texture, color, taste even shape. Everything that I have learned is used to convey those attributes in my music so that everyone else can hear it as well.

I think that I am getting better at it, but the journey is just beginning.

Welcome along.

Chris MacAlpine
